I want to calculate MACD(50, 90,9), however I don't know how to specifiy the "50" and "90" values. Matlab has default MACD of MACD(12, 26,9).

Most other people do not know what macd is, and the link helps other people to understand what is being asked.
The Mathworks supplied function does not support any other parameters.
I see hints in some research papers that some people have implemented general MACD in MATLAB, but it might not be easy to find the code.

with a little effort it should be possible to write your own MACD. The movavg function supports an exponential type as option. Together with the definition of the MACD it should be possible to build your own function, which accepts 3 input arguments to calculate the MACD like you wish.
For testing purposes i suggest, that you compare the results of your function (using the standard values) with the result of the built in MACD. Then you can be sure to made it correct.
If you have access to Financial Toolbox on R2018a or higher, then you can use this function from FEX to calculate the MACD like you wish.
Best regards
