If I have the movie clips: ball0_mc, ball1_mc, ball2_mc &&.. ball50_mc    and I will like to test if any ball hits a movie clip named target_mc then do I have to type:?

if (ball0_mc.hitTestObject(target_mc) || ball1_mc.hitTestObject(target_mc) || ball2_mc.hitTestObject(target_mc) .......  ball50_mc.hitTestObject(target_mc)  ) {
trace("hit");
}

Is there a way of testing a collision if the movie clip contains the word ball for example? In other words to test the collision of all the movie clips that contains the word ball with the movie clip target_mc?

You need to setup an array to hold all of the balls.  Once you have the array setup, you can check for the collision like this.
for(var i:int = 0; i < balls.length; i ++) {

     var ball = balls[i];

     trace(ball.hitTestObject(target_mc));

}
