List of files where i want to reverse words in file name

Specs: Windows 7
Windows 7

I got several hundred files i need to rename. What i really want to do is
put the batch file in the directory that i want to change and run it from there
I have read the forums but most of the code is way over my head. The one
constant seems to be the comma. Sorry to say but My talent seems to be
limited to dir /B > dir.txt to get a list of files to print out.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have downloaded Batch Renamer and glad i did but if it does what i want to do. I do not understand how. While it will rename, move, replace certain sting lengths. The files i need renamed will not have the same length everytime. And i want to swap certain words in the file name. From what i have read you can parse a file name with "space" as each string. Basicly the name is something like this:
"String1 Last Name, String 2 First Name,String Song.Ext." and i want to change it to "String First Name, String Last Name, String Song.EXT"
