1- I’m looking for a more complete manual for newRPL. The one on Wiki is missing quite a few pages. No offense intended, it’s just an observation.

No offense taken, your observation is accurate: the wiki just started, it has some basic things but it's no AUR yet.
I'm interested to know exactly what topics you were looking for that are missing, I'll take notes to make sure the information gets added eventually.

All I could find was Emu48 for MacOS which I haven’t installed yet.
Is this the one I even need to interface the newRPL 50g to the Mac?

No, Emu48 won't talk to newRPL. newRPL communicates with newRPL Desktop.
You need to build it from sources on your Mac. I don't have a Mac so I can't help much, but I imagine it shouldn't be too far from the instructions for FreeBSD.
If you can install Qt Creator on your Mac, you should be able to build newRPL without much trouble.
As far as the USB connection, I'm not sure what steps are needed to give a program access to the USB port on a Mac (perhaps it works out of the box like in Windows?).

My suggestion (cumbersome, but should work) would be to install VirtualBox on your Mac, then build newRPL Desktop on an Ubuntu VM. Alternatively, use a Windows VM and the prebuilt newRPL demo that's published. On VirtualBox is easy to "send" your USB device directly to the VM, I have tested it and works like a charm.
It's not the ideal solution, but will get the job done.
