As to your first request: you can hack the Info.plist file and add your 
extensions (take the dtx file as an example, I think it has index #15), 
just copy and add. You'll find the info.plist file in the application 
bundle of TeXShop (right click on the applications). The second request 
you might then handle by using the personal scripts.

No guerantees, it might be that TeXShop decides on the colouring when 
it opens, not by the type given in the plist file. In that case, hack 
the source.
