There are some similar goodies on http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/queries.html

I don't think it has everything you're looking for, but it's a start.

You can do the above from the web UI though.

Go to the advanced search page, select the resolutions you want to 
match, put "1/1/1970" to "4m" in the date range section of the Bug 
Changes section, and run the search.

Once you have the results, click the "change several bugs at once" link 
at the bottom, then click "Check All", pick the option to close the 
bugs, and submit.
