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.
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
