I got my diplomacy working, and I made my own kingdom and want to make an Alliance with the Swadians. I was never at war with them, most of the lords like me, and the faction is cooperative with me. How do I make an Alliance? Thanks in advance.
P.S. I do not want to make a truce, also how do I make emissaries and spies and how do I give castles to lords?

alliance: you wil first need to make a truce than a trade agreement then an allience might be possible with enouh persuasion of the emisary.
to make emisaries talk to your minister (not when its a prominent citizen but when its your wife or a companion.). For a spy talk to one of the custom characters i think the chancelor

both can do the job, only the prominent citizen can not.  You can offer trade agreements to other factions as soon as they have reconigzed you and you are at peace with them. (possible you first need to do a truce with them)

yes trade agreements with other factions increase the amount of prosperity each caravan of that faction gives to the city of your faction when trading there. (example when you own dhirim and got an agreement with rhodoks, each caravan of the rhodoks will increase prosperity in dhirim (like they always do) but the trade agreement makes it have a bigger effect.

it means you become his vassal. And the spy checks out other faction's settlements and tells you how many enemy soldiers are in the town or castle.

If i remember correctly, you must own a kingdom ( be the king ) then you can access this through your minister (the one you pick from your companions , wife or prominent citizen <-- citizen cant do **** so use wife or companion)
