I've done searches. Everything is 2 or 3 years old. I found the Scaffolding plugin which looks great, but it's not supported on Cloud. I desperately need this feature. I need to add a new section to my customer pages and I don't want to edit 50 pages manually. I need to be able to update the template the pages are based on once.
That's very much not what templates are for, and it would be a disaster for most people - I don't want old pages changing when I decide I need to change a template! What happens if your 50-ish pages were not the only ones created from your template and you stomp on someone else's work?
There is a use for the idea, of course, but you can't (and never will be able to) do it with templates. Scaffolding is still the main way to implement it, and no, I'm afraid, it's not for Cloud. Generally, people use include and excerpts to do this - you set up a library of pages that contain the information that might need to change globally, and then include/excerpt them instead of putting in the same data repeatedly. Not ideal, and only works for some types of information.
