I know there are non-English dictionaries that come with the latter choice but haven't installed them.

CocoAspell integrates with the system wide system. Once installed you need to choose one of its dictionaries (I choose English (Aspell)) and then CocoAspell is used in all applications that use the Cocoa Spelling Framework (e.g., Mail).
There is no way to tell Apple's Spell Checker to ignore LaTeX commands in any sort of general way.
