The hyphenation patterns are located in /usr/local/teTeX/share/ 
texmf.tetex/tex/generic/hyphen/ithyph.tex (Claudio Beccari). They are  
used in TeX via the Babel system, /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/ 
tex/generic/babel/italian.ldf, /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/ 

You probably do not need to create new formats with initex. There is  
(sudo -H) fmtutil-sys for the whole system, or fmtutil for your  
personal demand. By default the Italian hyphenation patterns *are*  
included -- so if you change them you just would need to re-new the  

There too is texconfig or texconfig-dialog (for the system it is to  
be used as 'sudo -H texconfig-sys') which you can use to change parts  
of your teTeX installation. If you prefer the Mac way you can do it  
using i-Installer to 'configure only' your system.
