I don't think you can dump and add custom formats to TeXShop (this is 
something I tried to achieve too, also to use a publisher-defined 
format, without success). Maybe it's possible to use teTeX's binaries 
instead, through the command-line interface, but then it requires some 
familiarity - which I don't have - with TeX on such interfaces.

However, still in Mac OS X, OzTeX allows you to use custom formats, as 
do - but then I'm not absolutely sure - CMacTeX and iTeXMac; or, if you 
don't mind firing up Classic, Textures.
