Yes. (see bellow)

Not as far as I know.

This is not really needed but could be convenient :)

You can do command preprossesing/handling through #0:do_command (check the
latest version of the LambdaMOO programmer manual for more information),
where you could do your prepositions substitutions or, if you want to have
more prepositions and a more english/spanish like command syntax, you can
write a complete in-db parser (there is some documentation at E_MOO about
the in-db parser of the E_CORE: )

Good luck.
