Actually, if you want to make an EMP that kills daemons, you'll need to change or copy/paste/edit the actual detonation "function simunit:processEMP" found in sim\simunit.lua

There's a cascade of abilities for EMP such that the agent uses the item, item spawns a unit, unit triggers itself "TRG_END_TURN" and finds targets, and targets are then dealt the function "processEMP".  It's one of the more complicated items in the game.  I recommend creating new abilities and functions for the whole set to minimize conflicts.

As for the actual killing of Daemons, the lines from Hunter are what you need.  I used them to create a Buster Chip style daemon-killer.
