Well, BBEdit doesn't make a big song and dance about TeX. (It only does this with (X)HTML.) However, there is adequte TeX syntax colouring (autoactivate when you save with a .tex extension), a very detailed LaTeX glossary available and some excellent scripts.

There is a LOT of AppleScript information in the BBEdit Manual (in the App bundle and available from the help menu as an indexed PDF), but for the nitty gritty, the best way to "learn" is to examine its (massive) applescript dictionary e.g. with Script Editor, Script Debugger or Smile.
