I have lots of Autohotkeys autocorrect entries which I want to import in LibreOffice, and not by hand. In OpenOffice I could edit the Oos file, what about here?

The AutoCorrect DAT files are actually just ZIP files:

$ unzip -l /opt/libreoffice5.1/share/autocorr/acor_en-AU.dat 
Archive:  /opt/libreoffice5.1/share/autocorr/acor_en-AU.dat
  Length      Date    Time    Name
---------  ---------- -----   ----
        0  2016-02-11 14:15   mimetype
      464  2016-02-11 17:06   BlockList.xml
   169204  2016-02-11 17:06   DocumentList.xml
      373  2016-02-11 17:06   META-INF/manifest.xml
     6871  2016-02-11 17:06   SentenceExceptList.xml
     1344  2016-02-11 17:06   WordExceptList.xml
---------                     -------
   178256                     6 files

... so either use an XML editor or some other kind of transforming tool.
