> I recently started using aquamacs and it's great.  For many of the commands, keystrokes are provided in the menus which makes it nice to learn emacs. However, I find some interesting commands in the menus that do not have a keyboard shortcut displayed (or defined?). Is it "standard procedure" to define a shortcut oneself?

You can define keyboard shortcuts using the Keyboard preference pane in System Preferences.  This is the Mac-way, not perhaps the Emacs-way, but it works.  In the Keyboard preference pane there is a tab called "Keyboard shortcuts" and you can click on the "+" to add a shortcut to any given menu in any application.
