Call a variable in String

How do i call an integer variable on array in a string? I'm trying to make it so my spell says: "Hurls a fireball from the palm of your hand towards the target, and calls another fireball down from the heavens, and when they collide, they explode doing (Variable[Level of Ability Being Cast]) Damage."
is this possible?
No, it's impossible to link tooltips (Object Editor exclusive fields) with triggers. However, if the spell itself damages with a static damage, e.g. 60 and not some stat-dependency, then you can mimic the default spells' tooltips, e.g.:
Calls down waves of falling stars that damage nearby enemy units. Each wave deals <AEsf,DataA1> damage. |nLasts for <AEsf,Dur1> seconds.
Those odd stuff are fields. Hit Ctrl + D to view them and refer accordingly.
