A friendly reminder, please remember to title threads in the DM Q&A board as being a DM Q&A post so that people do not respond to such directly from recent postings/threads without knowing which board such has been placed within, I've gone and updated the title.
For talking through an associate for emotive text we make use of the same chat system that the language system uses (the DMFI chat system that's been customized a fair bit). Use the following two characters to start your line of text (much like you would use "[" at the start of the text to speak a racial/regional language in the chat box) both ";"and "," can be used without the quotes " " and follow a different order of priority so that if you have two summons both have a different character associated with them.
So it would read something like the following when entered into your chat bar to make the associate repeat the line *The horse happily takes a bite from the apple*. ; *The horse happily takes a bite from the apple*.
For Player Tool 1 you can use the feat to select the associate the tool is to control by targeting them with it directly like you would target someone with a spell (This only works for controlling a single summon as best I know). Using the tool on the ground will cause the summon to move to that location. Targeting a hostile NPC or Player with the tool will cause the selected associates to run upto and attack them, targeting a non-hostile should have them move to that location but not attack the target. One other thing of note with Player Tool 1, if you wish the associate to remain at the location you informed it to move to, use the Stand Ground Stance by right clicking on the associate and using the radial menu to set the stance.
Other helpful chat commands to make use of with a summoned creature is !detect and !stealth which places the creature into detect or stealth mode and can be used to make them walk instead of run everywhere and benefit from stealth/detect mode if they have the skills for such.
