I use lynx, but everytime I need to open a magnet: link I need to save it and then, get out of lynx and then cat lynx_bookmarks.html copy the link and the pass it to the command line as a parameter to aria2c.

How can I associate the magnet: links to aria2c so that lynx knows to open them with aria2c by defaul?

Lynx will not do this for you; the "magnet:" URI is not recognized. See the documentation for known protocols: http://lynx.invisible-island.net/lynx_help/lynx_url_support.html
