That is not possible.

You can't add races to the selection popup menu in the game.

You can only create a dialog in the beginning of the map where you can chose races.

Do it like this:

Well you create a dialog per trigger:

- dialog - create trigger

then you save it in a variable e.g. "raceChoser"

Now you create the buttons for it:

- Nightelf, orc, undead, human, e.g. naga....

and save EACH one in a variable -> "butNightelf" "butOrc" ... and so on
Then you create a trigger:

Event: Button is pressed for dialog
Condition: -

IF(pressed button = "butNightelf")
-> Create nightelf starting units for triggering player (I think triggering player will work here)
IF(pressed button = "butOrc")
-> Create orc starting units for triggering player

and so
