Assuming PS 3.0 or later, because of the "Get-Content -Raw":
$Sql = Get-Content -Path 'C:\Temp\test.sql' -Raw
$Sql -replace '(?s)AS\r\nBEGIN', ("NOT FOR REPLICATION`r`nAS`r`nBEGIN") | Set-Content -Path "C:\Temp\test-NFR.sql"

You should seriously consider upgrading to at least PS 3.0, which adds lots of nice features and fixes errors. PS 2.0 is from 2009, PS 5.0 is now available for Windows 7 /Server 2008 R2 and later.
$Sql = [IO.File]::ReadAllText("C:\Temp\test.sql")
$Sql -replace '(?s)AS\r\nBEGIN', ("NOT FOR REPLICATION`r`nAS`r`nBEGIN") | Set-Content -Path "C:\Temp\test-NFR.sql"
