I know nothing about /Apple macintoshii/, but a little about
TeX, TUG, and the worldwide TeX community, and I can reassure
you categorically that you do not need to join TUG even once
in order to avail yourself of the wealth of information that
will be willingly offered if you ask questions on the appropriate
fora (TeXhax, the MacTeX list, the TeXlive list and so on).

The only reason for considering joining TUG (other than a desire
to support it in its efforts to support TeX and the TeX cause)
would be in order to qualify from a free TeX Live DVD once per
year, and in order to receive free printed copies of TUGboat
(and, perhaps, to gain cheaper admittance to some TeX-related
conferences).  And even for those benefits, a single membership
will suffice; you may clone the TeXlive DVD as you wish.
