I'm not entirely sure: you want to tag all headline in a file with
multiple pre-defined tags?

With `org-loop-over-headlines-in-active-region' set to `t', you can
tag multiple headlines by selecting a region with the headlines you
want to tag, then C-c C-q to tag them one after another.

You cannot add multiple tags for each headline this way, though.

I would go for defining a temporary local tag like "replaceme" to
tag multiple (all) headline in the file, then simpy search/replace
occurrences of "replaceme" with your:list:of:tags
