The lua(la)tex engines come with the latest versions of TeXShop. Don't remember if they are activated by default. If not they can be activated by moving them from ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/LuaTeX/ two directories ``up'' to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ and restarting TeXShop. The engines should then appear in the popup engine list on the Source and Preview window toolbar. The tell TeXShop to always use the lulatex engine for a given file place the line
% !TEX TS-program = lualatex
near the top of the source file and then Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T) will execute that engine automatically. If your document has cross-references, a bibliography (or bibliographies) and/or an index (or indexes) there is also a lualatexmk engine that will take care of all the processing necessary to get a final document which can be found in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/. Activate it in the same way as for the lualatex engine.
