I'm not an Eshell expert, but AFAIK `eshell/alias' is the corresponding
Elisp function.

So for example this would work:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(add-hook 'eshell-mode-hook
          (defun my-eshell-add-aliases ()
             for alias in
             '(("mkcd" "mkdir $1; cd $1")
             do (apply 'eshell/alias alias))))

That modifies the alias save file as side effect.

The aliases are stored in the variable `eshell-command-aliases-list'.
That variable doesn't seem to be intended to be modified directly,
