That macro from QuotedDoubleQuote.plist works exactly the way I needed. I’ll use it for certain arrow options in tikzcd environments.

I do want the default key binding for the double-quote, since in most contexts that’s what I need.

If you always want the " you can go to Source->Key Bindings->Edit Key Bindings File… and remove that key binding. If you only need it occasionally create a macro that does nothing but insert a "; I enclose one I call `Quoted "' in TeXShop's Macro Menu which I bound to Shift-Cmd-' by default. If I need a " I simply type the shortcut (which is really just Cmd-") to get that inserted in the source file.
