Thanks to all for your helpful suggestions.
Herb, you did guess that I was trying to find and open the source
file to various packages, sorry I wasn't clearer. I tried the Open
Selection macro in TeXShopKit.zip from <http://homepage.mac.com/
herbs2/>, and it worked great, thanks so much. This is the solution
I'm going to use.
Thanks to others for suggesting this script which does exactly what I
was looking for.
open -a TeXShop `kpsewhich $*`
In my test, the & at the end of the command was indeed unnecessary.
I didn't try the advice on creating a shell function but will file it
away as it looks like it could be handy for other things too.
Thanks so much,
