Easy! Since you already have the working engine for TeXShop (let's say it's called asyengine.engine) we can cheat!

Go to TeXworks->Preferences->Typesetting and press the +  in Processing tools (to create a new tool). Name the tool asyengine (or whatever you wish). To find the program hit Browse... and then Shift-Cmd-H to get to your HOME folder and then work your way down to Library/TeXShop/Engines/ and Double Click the asyengine.engine file; that should put the complete path to that engine into the Program: slot. Finally hit the + in the Arguments: area (to create a ne argument), call it $fullname and press return. Finally press OK and OK again in the preferences. The asyengine tool should then appear in the popup menu.

Not the most general way to do it but...

Good Luck,
