Win the game once with any Roman faction, and then you can play any faction (except Senate and Slaves/Rebels).

i really wish you didnt have to edit the files to get macedon because my new computer is not letting me save the edits to the dest.strat file making it annoying for me to try and play my favorite faction

That's not your new computer, rather the new Windows version that doesn't let you do that. You have to give yourself permission to edit this file. To do this, go to the document (descr_strat), right click and go to properties.
This brings up several tabs, go to the tab security there you will find a user/group list. Select your username and click on the large edit button under this list. Now check the option (first one in the list) that grants full access to the document and you should be able to save the changes you make to descr_strat.
*note: some tabs/steps might slightly differ in their actual name, this was a translation of the steps I took with my dutch windows version.
