I am also new to TeXShop (or iTeXMax); well, actually, I am just 
figuring out how difficult would it be for me the transition to OSX 
(in principle: HARD, judging by the non-user-friendly way of 
installing everything). Converning the matter of rebuilding formats 
with a newly edited language.dat file, Wierda says:

1.1 Do you mean this is ALL that is needed to rebuild them all?

1.2 Can I \dump my own format files (especialized LaTeXs with several 
packages incorporated? Should I just compile them and save them as 
.fmt files in some directory? Which one?

1.3 Is this--and similar--information available in the documentation?

2.1 What do you mean?

Thanks a lot in advance.
