1) Make a new NPC by right clicking on the list of NPCs and selecting 'new'. Guards can be any race, any level, and equipped in any way you so desire.

2) Make sure that the guard is of class 'Guard'.

3) On his/her AI make sure that Alarm is set to 100

4) All bethesda guards who are outside are equipped with a torch of infinite time

thats about it

You are in luck
ManaUser helped me out with this one 2 months ago.

1st) A script:
______________
begin av_guardScript_02

short NoLore
short Dieonce

if ( GetHealth < 1 ) ;she be dead
if ( DieOnce == 0 ) ;do once

disable ;remove the corpse
MessageBox "Your Guard is dead. . .and she's very Pissed!"

PlaceAtPC "avaros_guard_spirit_01" 1 128 1

set DieOnce to 1

endif
endif

end
__________
If I allow my guard to get killed...an NPC (Vampire looking version of the guard) attacks my sorry Butt.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2nd) Here are "some!!!" of my guard NPC STATS:

Class: GUARD
*AGI 200
*SPEED 200
(*This prevents falling behind problems, getting stuck problems)
You can still out run them at Players speed 90+, so don't worry.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3rd) some "Sample/Example" dialogue.

Topic: Require a guard

Info: Do you wish for me to travel with you Sir?

Result: choice "Yes, follow me." 1 "Not right now. Wait here for me." 2 "You should recall and wait for my return." 3

info: If you feel that's best. Till then...

result: avaros_guard_01->PositionCell 3840 4360 3550 21600 "Balmora, Avaro manor"
playSound, "mysticism cast"
avaros_guard_01->AIWander 0 0 0 0 0

info: Yes Sir. I will wait here for your orders.

result: avaros_guard_01->AIWander 0 0 0 0 0

info: Yes Sir. I will follow you and protect you with my life. (Just don't get us killed you crazy Nord!!!;-)

result: avaros_guard_01->AIFollow Player 0 0 0 0
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4th) My female guard doubles as a healer,

choice, "Go ahead.", 4
cast, "heal companion", player

a companion that carries "loot" (Not "Lute"), armorer, psudo pawnbroker, and..errrr...a dancing girl--but the above should answer your original question.

PLEASE NOTE: I had many a wierd event happen when I gave a guard "Slow fall"
Don't do it! EVER! Every time you go through a door with them-you get hurt bad/or die. (My version of Morrowind-with patches)
Do not give a Guard "Player type weapons" that have "Soul trap" and other things they just don't need.
I thought it no big thing just to equip them as I was equiped. The guards would have a "Magic cloud" persist around them like flies on Poop after a battle. Would not go away till I just gave them a fire sword or something good to fight with and re-started the game.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

easiest of all is to re-ID existing guards,
