As said many times on this list, do NOT manipulate the .app bundle.

Extensions are installed in ~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs Emacs (or  
the system-wide equivalent in /Library).  You should be able to a  
directory there to keep different extensions separate.  You can  
compile using Aquamacs as you say, or, more reliably, use --with-emacs  
`which emacs', which will select the emacs that comes with OS X.  It  
is usually in /usr/bin/emacs, I believe.
