Synchronization BBEdit <--> TeXniscope is possible

In TeXniscope's preferences set

Edit command: /usr/bin/bbedit (also check in the Terminal: which bbedit)
Editor arguments :  +%d "%s"

Then synchronization T-->B should be possible.

For the other way around use the script below.

A new script pdflatex_special and a new subroutine preview_bbedit can 
be downloaded from my tex page. The TeX-Scripts-BBEdit will be updated 
over the weekend.
