I can I create an alias and be able to use it each time I login?  Now I can create an alias, but when I logout and log back in I have to create it again.

"create" the alias in the .login file in your home directory, then it will create itself each time you log in.

write alias in general profile. So, all users can to use your alias.
In Solaris, the general profile is /etc/profile.

even it's an duplicate question, here are some places to write aliases permanent
(depends on your login shell and/or OS which one will/can be used):

/etc/{bashrc,cshrc,profile,login,tcshrc}
/etc/cshrc.std
/etc/.{cshrc,login,tcshc,login}
/etc/csh.{cshrc,login}
~/.{bashrc,bash_history,cshrc,history,login,profile,tcshrc,zshrc}
(probably some more ;-)
