We have a need to create 3 additional SQL alias on each on each SharePoint server for

How would you recommend we edit the XML file to do this.

Each service app gives you the ability to specify a different SQL server and/or create a new alias (or even create a new alias pointing to the same SQL server as the farm or other service apps). Is this what you're looking for?

We are using some third party software that are using dedicated SQL instances (not being used by SharePoint), a workflow application and a financial application. We would like autoSPinstall to create the SQL alias for these instances as well as the SQL alias for sharepoint. This way we do not need to manually create the aliases on each servers in the farm.

I might just copy and rename the Create-SQLalias function into the custom file and pass in the sql s erver info.
