[OS X TeX] New to the list with a cocktail of questions on how to migrate from Textures

Hello everyone,

I am new here and have one big question:

For a long time I have used Textures under Mac OS9, and I have plenty 
of such documents. I kept on using Textures under Classic when I 
switched to OS X. But with the Intel Macs, Classic will not be 
supported. So I am trying to use TeXShop and would like to be able to 
re typeset the Textures documents with TeXShop. I know that I will 
have to suffer for the graphics, since the way graphics are handled 
under Textures is very specific. But I was hoping that would be all. 
In particular, I used this short file called tex8bits.tex which 
allows to use accented letters in the source file and have them be 
replaced by the proper composite at typeset time (thus working with 
every the Textures fonts as well as some Mac fonts).
I also used in my papers a cursive font (Kuenstler) for specific math 
letters (for which the standard cursive TeX fonts where not really 
satisfactorymainly because they were already used for other 
objects!). Hence my three  concurrent needs:

1) use of tex8bits.tex in the source under TeXshop
2) use ofone or two specific Mac OSX fonts
3) Use of some colors.

How should I do this with minimal pain when migrating from Textures 
to TeXShop or an equivalent front end?

Thanks for the help.
