You can take a look at the latexmk engines and rc files that I use for TeXShop integration; they are located in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ (unless you already moved them two directories up into ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/) and ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/tslatexmkrc/. There also is a file that is created the first time any of the engines runs, ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/latexmkrcedit, for placing customizations when the engines execute.

I am not used to latexmk and simply used the shell scripts I know.

Yes, the software reads the first line and determines which shell script has to be called pdftex or xetex, then  the corresponding shell script uses the option first line parsing.
