we have been using Aquamacs and Org-mode quite a lot and we are very happy with it. I agree that I do not like Org-mode's default behaviour for Shift-arrow, however this works well for me:

;; Conventional selection/deletion 
(setq org-support-shift-select t)

;; based on a tip from the Org-mode list (thanks, "PT")
(defun my-org-mode-stuff ()
  (define-key org-mode-map [(meta tab)] 'previous-user-buffer)
  (local-set-key (kbd "C-S-<right>") 'forward-word-mark)
  (local-set-key (kbd "C-S-<left>") 'backward-word-mark)
  (local-set-key (kbd "S-<right>") 'forward-char-mark)
  (local-set-key (kbd "S-<left>") 'backward-char-mark)
  (local-set-key (kbd "S-<up>") 'previous-line-mark)
  (local-set-key (kbd "S-<down>") 'next-line-mark))

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'my-org-mode-stuff)
