no, it’s not really possible to pass typed parameters to macros in wiki syntax.

However, if the macro is written in Java and it expects a List<String>, and you 
pass a comma-separated list, XWiki will convert the string to List 
automatically. Example:

{{someMacro listParam=“val1, val2, val3”/}}

This is not possible in a wiki macro though.
