You'll need an engine file for each kind or type of TeXifying! There  
is no way to pass arguments from TeX Shop to an engine or macro. Or  
you need a Meta TeXify, something that in TeX's bin directory exists:  
a dozen different hard or sym-links that all are or point to one file  
that acts differently, based on the name it was invoked (latex,  
pdflatex, amstex, jadetex, xmltex are all the same).

You are mixing up things: updmap and texify are executables, they are  
not part of TeX. So they need to be found in shell's view of a search  
path for executables.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.
