I assume you want to select text in your source document. Basically by marking a beginning and an end using the cursor.
It is possible to extend your Keyboard commands to do that. If you download and install (information comes with the files) KeyBindings.zip there will be a set of new commands. Move the cursor to where you wish the beginning of the selection and Press Ctl-X Space (that is Ctl-X and then, separately, Space) which places an invisible marker at the position of the cursor. Then move the cursor to where you wish to end the selection and press Ctl-X Ctl-M (separately, ditto) and the text in between will be selected. Oh... these commands will work in all applications that use Apple's Text Framework; e.g., Mail and TextEdit. You can download KeyBindings.zip from <https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10932738/index.html>.
There are lots of things that can be done this way.

I should say, however, that I have moved to a only Mac recently, after having used Winedt (on Windows, of course) for several years. In Winedt, for any command I can run with the mouse or from a button, I can also find the actual macro call, which I can then copy in an existing macro, such as typeset, which pretty much does the trick. (One can also assign key bindings to anything I can run otherwise.)
Now I'm not sure what you are asking for. Synching between what and what?
