Font Suitcases are relics from "Classic" Mac OS, they don't work in  
Mac OS X. The AFM files, erroneously brand-marked as "Alpha Files,"  
are Adobe Font Metrics files and really do not belong into any Fonts  
(sub)folder in Mac OS X.

PostScript fonts work somehow. Since they don't come with OpenType or  
TrueType tables (built into the font files) they are just a bunch of  
glyphs without attributes.

I would be confused, too, of that many font files...

The single OTF file looks most useful.

XDV is the extended DVI format which XeTeX produces when invoked with  
the argument "-no-pdf." The you can use xdv2pdf or xdvipdfmx to  
convert this file to PDF.
