David, I use Aquamacs as explained in  <https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/AquamacsEmacsCompatibilitySettings>:

        ns-command-modifier 'meta         
; Apple/Command key is Meta

 	ns-alternate-modifier nil         
; Option is the Mac Option key

 	ns-use-mac-modifier-symbols  nil  
; display standard Emacs (and not standard Mac) modifier symbols)


I understand, though, that you pursue a different approach, trying to make Emacs a more Apple-like application. ;) But key-mapping is a quite different topic. The Touch Bar may be there, but it should not alter the way we use Emacs because such an interface would definitely make Emacs a less efficient tool for editing. Maybe you'll have to emulate the ESC function from within Aquamacs...
