I've set up my jira project as such:
I'd like to set an automation that adjusts the start and due date of all dependent tasks based on the due date of a trigger task. For example:

Hi @Hyqel Helmy -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
You can do this with automation for Jira rules, and can find solutions others have used by searching for automation synchronization examples in posts in this community forum.
