the .bib file does not need to be processed, the .aux file yes.
If you open your .tex file, the bibtex button will be available, and it
will parse
the .aux file.
Where to put the bibliography is given by the BibTeX man page, but
TeXShop does not yet use the BIBINPUT environment variable.

Not a complete answer: if you put stuff in your local texmf tree, you
can avoid texhashing as long as you don't have thousands of files. In
that case, you should remove any ls-R file previously created. G Wierda
says the lost is not significant...
