It might be easier to learn the commands for
M-x query-replace. Once you have defined the match string and replacement string, it will pass over all the matches in a region (or the rest of the buffer after your cursor) and allow you to either replace or skip.
Here are the commands you can run (from the ? help text):
Query replacing A with B.
Type Space or ‘y’ to replace one match, Delete or ‘n’ to skip to next,
RET or ‘q’ to exit, Period to replace one match and exit,
Comma to replace but not move point immediately,
C-r to enter recursive edit (C-M-c to get out again),
C-w to delete match and recursive edit,
C-l to clear the screen, redisplay, and offer same replacement again,
! to replace all remaining matches in this buffer with no more questions,
^ to move point back to previous match,
u to undo previous replacement,
U to undo all replacements,
E to edit the replacement string.
In multi-buffer replacements type ‘Y’ to replace all remaining
matches in all remaining buffers with no more questions,
‘N’ to skip to the next buffer without replacing remaining matches
in the current buffer.
