Create symbolic links for all items in a folder

Creating aliases is easy. Select all, then drag into the other folder holding command and option.

an alias is not the same as a symbolic link.

'Mac aliases' sound better in principle since they keep track if items move, even across disks. However they don't work with unix scripts, updaters and installers can use scripts to set files and folders up correctly. Symbolic links are a better option if you expect to be needing to run updates on the linked files etc, just don't move them around.
