How can I add evaluations for the maasai pawn pushes?

You can set the Forwardness Piece-Square-Table componenets.  For the regular Pawn type, it is 7 midgame and 10 endgame.  For user-defined pieces it's 0.  So you can set PSTMidgameForwardness=7 and PSTEndgameForwardness=10 to make it consistent with the Pawn.

You can look at the PSTs in the piece properties.  And you'll need to restart the program after making changes to an include file.  They are parsed at startup.
