    It is quite easy. There are two steps for dialog and NPCs. First you have to patch the "villager.npctype" file to include your race, there are also villageguard, villageguardcaptian, and wanderingmerchant to name other NPCs that appear in villages. In the dialog folder there are a handful of files that you can patch.

    arrivedhome.config for the dialog of tenants when you call them using the colony deed.
    combat.config what the NPC will say when they engage in battle.
    converse.config normal dialog for when you chat with NPCs.
    crewmember.config the dialog for crewmembers.
    flee.config the dialog for for when a defenseless NPC is under attack.
    quest.config small bits of dialog that are used across various randomly generated quests.

    Hope this helps.
