Yes, maxima has some pattern recognition. The stuff for rules
implements some pattern recognition.
Also op can help you with identifying the type.
op(a + b + c) -> +
See the documentation for op, defrule, tellsimp, and related functions.
Perhaps that has what you want.
Perhaps others who know this far better than I can give some hints too.
