some more on this. Tried a few things today in order to get XeLaTeX  
working with Aquamacs and SyncTeX. Works with these settings:

open Aquamacs
type: M-x latex mode
go to the LaTeX menu, select Customize AucTeX:Browse Options
go to TeX command group
go to TeX command list
insert a new item:
Name: XeLaTeX_SyncteX
Command: %`xelatex --synctex=1%(mode)%' %t
check boxes for LaTeX and whatever else you want to use with this  
save for future sessions

Hope this helps,
