Is there a way to make an alias point to multiple files/applications?
In Windows shortcuts, I could edit the "target" field to add targets and command line options. I can't find any such way to edit Mac aliases, though.

I don't use a Mac, but I do have one suggestion. You can create a bash script to run any commands you want, including running any programs, when double clicked. If necessary (i.e if you can't just put the shell script in the right place) you could then create an alias to point to that script, and it should theoretically run all the programs specified.
In Windows I'd do similar things with batch files.

You can change what app an alias points to, but I don't believe you can select multiple ones.
To change which app it points to, click on it then press Command+i to bring up the information panel and change the target app there.
