Is it possible to batch edit assets?  For example, I'd like to assign the appropriate Department name to a field for numerous assets on the k1000.

Sure. If you export your assets to .csv, you can make your changes on the spreadsheet and the re-import. Make sure you select a field that is not changing as your primary key when you re-import the .csv following your changes. Test an import with one asset. Make sure it indicates that one asset is going to be updated, not one asset will be added. You don't want to wind up with duplicates.

If it is possible to isolate the machines that need updating, perhaps by label, it is also possible to create a ticket rule that will make bulk updates to asset records, but you need to be careful.
