[OS X Emacs] Create Copy of Emacs.app to run gnus in own instance

I would like to do the following:

1) run gnus in a separate emacs instance
  I am doing this at the moment by using Automator and calling the
  following bash script to launch emacs / gnus:

| #!/bin/bash
| open -n -a /Applications/Emacs.app --args --name Mail --title Mail --no-desktop --no-splash --funcall gnus

2) not use the emacs dock and app icon, but use a Gnus icon instead
  I have changed the the app icon (the one I see in the Applications
  folder) but as I am starting actually Emacs.app, the Dock icon (the
  one in the dock bar) is the original Emacs.

As I do not know much about the structure of the Application folders, I
am asking:

If I copy the Emacs.app folder and rename it to Gnus.app, what else do I
have to change to achieve (1) and (2) without using the bash script?
