As far as I know, you can't edit the ale files directly. If you want a new flame effect you can use existing effects in place of the engine flame. For example, you can use gun effects for the flame - some of those look pretty good. If you do a search for new effects or something (or maybe just browse the editing forums) you'll find it somewhere.
