With assisting the mage, if I have anything set to MA does that mean he wont cast it the pet?
if so how would I set it so he cast on pet only

There is a pet section where you'll want to put the buffs you want on your pet. You'll also want to change the distance in the PetAttackDistance line, e.g. (relevant sections bolded):

[Pet]

PetOn=1
PetSpell=Embodiment of Water
PetFocus=NULL
PetShrinkOn=1
PetShrinkSpell=Diminutive Companion
PetBuffsOn=1
PetBuffsSize=6

PetBuffs1=Iceflame Keep
PetBuffs2=Burnout XIII
PetBuffs3=Companion's Aegis
PetBuffs4=Auspice of Esianti
PetBuffs5=Second Wind Ward
PetBuffs6=Host in the Shell


PetCombatOn=1
PetAssistAt=98
PetToysSize=1
PetToysOn=1
PetToys1=Grant Wirn's Armaments|Summoned: Gorstruck Iceblade|Summoned: Gorstruck Fireblade|
PetToysGave=Goner|Grant Wirn's Armaments:Summoned: Gorstruck Iceblade1|Grant Wirn's Armaments:Summoned: Gorstruck Fireblade2
PetBreakMezSpell=NULL
PetRampPullWait=0
PetSuspend=0
MoveWhenHit=0
PetHoldOn=0
PetForceHealOnMed=0
PetAttackDistance=115

The buffs are coming for the Alts, I run a Druid and cleric, they have a few buffs i only want on the tank, and the mage pet is the one tanking

Start your KA with the Pet Targeted (not the mage) on your druid and your cleric. If you have the MA tag on the buffs, it should buff just the pet with the selected buffs.

What MaxD suggested above is the preferred way, but if you are going to use the MA tag and want the pet to be buffed, then target the pet before starting kiss. However the Mage(Pet Owner) will be made Group MA and will set themselves as MainAssist. The Pet, of the Owner/MainAssist, can NOT acquire a target on it's own and has to rely on it's master to tell it what to attack next.
