There is no reason one file couldn't call another outside of  
aesthetic reasons. The other engine files would show up in the drop  
down menu on the document's tool bar and, unless they were useful by  
them self, it would just clutter things up. You also have to be  
careful about you call them since the path would have to be  
explicitly given as ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/...; e.g., the latexmk  
engines (e.g., pdflatexmk.engine) actually call the main latexmk  
script which gets stored in ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/.

Good Luck,
