I would like to make a data file so that Filebot could use it for file renaming, What kind of a file does it need to be? comma delimited ?

If you want to rename files based on information contained in sibling files, then the file format is completely up to you, as you'll be writing the code that'll parse this file:

:idea: Using XML / JSON / CSV / TSV files is probably a good idea, as that'll make parsing things much easier.

If you're using the GUI, then you can also just generate a text file and drop it into the New Names list.
