I am not sure to understand what you mean by:
"in LibEdit I noticed there’s no Edit Spice Model… button."
In Libedit, it is in Symbol Field dialog.

Just keep in mind all fields are fields of the root symbol, and aliases
share these fields, but cannot have specific fields.

Only 3 specific strings are related to a given alias:

So, If you change the symbol settings dialog, try to make very clear the
fact aliases do not have specific fields.
