#+begin_src stata
  foreach var of varlist _all{
    rename `var' new_`var'

works for me.

I think this depends on your export target. It should "just work" for
html, but pdf will be more work.

I think "#+begin_src stata" is correct.

C-c ' will open a temporary buffer in ess mode so you can edit and run
the code using ess, and tangling will work as expected. The only thing
you need babel support for is actually running the code in org-mode
and inserting the results block.

I've made weak attempts to add stata support to babel, but my
elisp-foo is not strong enough.
