this has nothing to do with TeXShop nor iTeXMac, this has to do with 
teTeX only.

here is an extract from G. Wierda's README.howtexfindsfiles:

"The files in my user directory are
searched without an "ls-R" hash file (unless such a file is available, 
but in
that case: remove it immediately, it generally only makes life worse for 

So with a ls-R free personnal texmf tree, you don't need to texhash.
You need to run texhash if you are an administrator modifying one of the 
global texmf trees.

to see if tex will find the style you just installed, just run in the 

kpsewhich -format=latex yourNewPackage.sty

as iTeXMac has a poor man built in terminal, you don't need to launch 
terminal.app, in iTeXMac, just enter ctrl+cmd+P (menu TeX:Terminal:Show) 
and ctrl+cmd+R (menu TeX:Terminal:Restart) then enter the above command.

If there is no answer, it means that tex won't find your file: you did 
not install it the right way
