It should be easy to apply them one at a time with a meta tool (8 key in this case), but perhaps you could write them as regular notes, apply the articulations, then convert to grace notes.

Just curious-

How would one actually play these tremoloed grace notes? Is it even possible? On what instrument(s)? Strings, I guess. Is there an example of this in the literature?

I am writeing score to my friend who is a composer and she doesn't know how to use any music writeing software.

Thanks for posting the example page. Seeing more of these figures in context, it appears that they are approximate to a certain effect, possibly not to be taken literally.

I'd say you friend is lucky to have you as her copyist.
