Alternate flight plan

Is it possible to implement an alternate route/destination to an active flight plan or a secondary flight plan ?

Yes it is, if you mean once activated? Just click on the waypoint "above" where you want your added destination(s) or waypoint to go. Then put in destination / Waypoint in the "waypoint box" and click "add" this will insert this into the flightplan, at the correct point, Just continue adding waypoints like you would when writing the initial flightplan, One you have done, click back to your first waypoints (that you have inserted) into the plan and click "jump to" and then the plane will implement that "inserted waypoint" and should then follow the rest of the plan as you have written or imported. Hope this helps? But I don't know if a "secondary" flightplan is or would be possible due to if two are possible and activated they would "fight" each other!

You can have as many flightplans you want:

Route-manager will only show 1 of them at a time though.

Thanks Clive2670 and Necolatis.
So, it's possible to implement an alternate flight plan for the active one on the pilot CDU and prepare another one, different, on the second CDU. Is that right ?
