    There currently seems to be no way (using ArcPy) to programatically update field aliases in an .mxd.  alterfield_management works, but only for a .gdb table not layers in an .mxd.   Alias properties in the .mxd can be edited manually, but this is not a good option if there are lots (hundreds) of layers that need an alias edit.
