Ok the patch was easier to write than expected and is available at 

the applescript syntax is

tell application "iTeXMac" to edit "the/full/path" at line nnn

for the viewer you have

tell application "iTeXMac" to display "the/full/path" at line nnn 
column in source "the/path/of/the/source"

of course, this one complies with pdfsync if that makes sense. Both are 
expected to comply with external editors and viewers

There are also shell commands for that:

~/Library/TeX/bin/iTeXMac edit -file "filename" -line lineNumber 
-column colNumber
~/Library/TeX/bin/iTeXMac display -file "filename.pdf " -source 
"sourcename.tex " -line lineNumber -column colNumber

and URL schemes for web browsers

file-special://localhost/"filename.tex "; action=edit;line=lineNumber ; 
file-special://localhost/"filename.pdf "; 
action=display;line=lineNumber ; column=columnNumber ; source="Posix 
source name.tex "
