novice needs help with a script for TOS

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I am a long time basic user of the TOS platform with NO experience with script writing.

I use the “Create Alert” feature with every graph along with
the “Notify with: Sound”.

That said, I was wondering if a similar alert can be used with a Study of yours
I use called “MACDWithPrices”. I would like the alarm to sound when
the fast length crosses over/under the slow length or the slow length crosses over/under
the fast length including the “Reverse Crossover” using a Watch List as its universe of symbols.
I would also like to receive a text message.

Can you help me construct this? Or can you put me in touch with someone?

open MarketWatch Tab,
right click on any symbol row, and select CREATE ALERT, then in "When To Notify" dropdown, choose STUDY- EDIT, then click ADD CONDITION, and in "select condition" dropdown, choose your CUSTOM STUDY, and set desired conditions.
