One way to do this would be to create a macro :

#define IS_OPPOSITE_ALIGN(ch,vict) \

And then modify the PERS() macro in utils.h (that act uses) to be :

#define PERS(ch, vict) \
        (CAN_SEE(vict, ch) ? (IS_OPPOSITE_ALIGN(vict, ch) ? \
           race_name[GET_RACE(ch)] : GET_NAME(ch)) : "someone")

Where GET_RACE(ch) returns the race of the character, and 
race_name[] is an array something like this with a string for each race:

race_name[] = {

You get the idea.  Note that this is probably buggy, as I wrote it 
quickly in the mailer, but it should point you in the right direction at 
least.  I'm not sure if changing PERS is enough, either, but any other 
changes you have to make will look similar to that.
