Build a group for many servers with same service monitoring?

We have about 30 cash register servers, all of which should be running the same services, performance stats, free disk, etc.
 
It also has a different email alarm configuration that includes different recipients from the default group.
 
Is there a way to build a template that monitors all of those specifics, and then apply it to a group of machines? Or do I have to build each machine and go through the process of building the monitoring details?

    You would need to create a group/template item which contains the correct recipients since those are all different.

    Once you setup the first group of entries Service, Perf, Disk Space, and etc. you would then use the "Add Copy" to create a basic copy of each of the entries and modify the host IP Address / Computer Name (whatever information is different) while adding the copy.

    For alerting, can would then set the "Use From" to the group template which contains the alerting configuration.

    A little quicker than adding a new entry and editing from scratch and if you need to change the alerting information in the future, you would then change the Group/Template item that is referenced by the entries rather than each individually.
