I think I posted something a while backing asking for help, but
here is what I ended up doing.

I removed the if (IS_NPC) check in do_cast so that will allow
npc's to use 'cast'.

I then added cases to the edesc feilds in db.c.

I believe it looked something like this,

case ("Fireball"): {
  RANGE(1, 100);
  GET_SKILL(mob_proto, SPELL_FIREBALL) = num_arg;

The only problem is that every skill/spell you want the mob to use has to
be added as a case here.  Did you find an easier or more efficient way?
