It is indeed a quickslot masked behind a custom button. As mentioned, you can't activate the alias within the code, all you can do is build the alias for the user to click. This is how it's done in any plugin that outputs to the chat channels. Just set the mouse visibility to false for the button and shape the quickslot to match the size.
