Can those changes be made when TeXShop has already opened Example.tex or does one have to quite TeXShop before applying Excalibur? At what point are the changes to Example.tex saved?

The only thing I don't understand about your original message is that you talk about Excalibur but you say you just installed CocoAspell. Those are two completely separate spellcheckers.
