Yes, that's alright! The first difference is that with texhash you  
get a few output files that all have exactly the same name, while  
with TeXShop you get a few files with the same name and all with a  
different extension.

The second difference is that texhash works on "system files" while  
TeXShop usually only handles files that belong to its user (while  
also /using/ in some way some of the "system files") and are  
restricted to some file name extensions (tex, aux, bib, ...). Texhash  
has no such restrictions.



To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists  
are things that are still all mixed up.
