I made an addon package for newtx that has an option for using Adobe small caps. I'll add this to the newtx package eventually, but it needs further testing, as I don't own those fonts. (I'm pretty sure my addons are OK based on the vpl files, but some visual evidence would be reassuring.)

The addon is currently available from

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3825336/TeX/index.html

under the name newtxc.zip. Unzip, cd to the level where fonts and tex are at the top level and run

/bin/cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf

To run tests, you must enable the map file ztmsc.map, which may be done by entering the lline

\pdfmapfile{+ztmsc.map}

in your preamble, if using pdflatex. The pfb files must be named ptmrc8a.pfb and ptmrb8a.pfb and copied into fonts/type1/public/newtx.

To use, place in your preamble the line
