The .sty file must be placed in


and it may be necessary to put .bib files in


rather than ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/ directly.

You also need to insert


into you preamble.

By the way, why are you including \usepackage{..} commands between  
\makeatletter and \makeatother? Packages are already loaded with that  
set and it may be (I'm not sure about this) turned off at the end of  
the package input.

Good Luck,
