Your descriptions are really hard to follow, with so many capital and
small and empty (SPACE) letters. As a work-around I know off you can
drag directories (folders) and also files from Finder into Terminal
and then copy the "materialised" path(s) from Terminal and paste them

Probably not. It's certainly not a problem of files added by MacTeX
into /private/etc/paths.d and /private/etc/manpaths.d. (You can check
what there exists with 'ls -l /private/etc/paths.d /private/etc/
and it will show the path to the root (beginning) of your private tree
of additions to the TeX distribution installed. Then write on the
(notice the final SPACE character!), copy the output from the command,
and paste it after the text you have written. Finally press RETURN.
Now your own private $TEXMFHOME should exist. If you want you can
install a structure of sub-directories (folders) inside this directory
and put your files into them. But you can also put a lot just on a
heap (I think BibTeX related files need a structure).
I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they've
always worked for me.
