I knew zmud 10 years ago, help learning cmud today.
 
I have been able to make some triggers work as expected but making some simple alias work has been a problem.

I need to make alias for spells like #alias mm "cast 'magic missile'"

I do that and it saves it like it would in zmud, but then when I type, mm troll, troll is not added, hence I have no target for my command.

I read the manual and it seams like I would need to make an alias not only for each command, but each command + target.

If I am missing something obvious I sure would like a hint.

I guess this works,

#ALIAS mm($target) {cast 'magic missile' $target}

Seems more complicated then it needs to be

That example is more complicated than it needs to be.
#Local variables are great, but they aren't needed unless you are actually manipulating the data in some way.
The simplest form you want would be:

#ALIAS mm {cast 'magic missile' %params}

You could use %1, but that is technically only one parameter, or %param(1), so if you had a multiword target you would need to pass it in quotes. This is easier.
