the file is „.emacs“ (and invisible when using the
finder). It is in your home directory. „.emacs.d“ is a
directory also in your home directory.

Using Emacs you can visit „.emacs“ and the files in
„.emacs.d“ in the standard way. Enter C-x C-f and
then in the minibuffer the name. With C-x C-w you
can copy „.emacs“ use a name like dot-emacs in order
to get the copy visible in the finder.
