I thought that you could run the Windows of KQ collection on the Mac (through a Windows emulator). But yea, I don't have a Mac, so I guess I was wrong.
Have you had success with finding a DOSBox frontend for the Mac version of DOSBox?
On the PC there is D-Fend reloaded and I'm sure there are similar tools on the MAC.
The way I have set it up is a single folder called "DOSBox Games" and in that folder I have subfolders like KQ1, Prince, SQ4 and so on.
The frontend does all the mounting for you and "starts" in the "DOSBox Games" folder. Then I just type:
and I'm set. To go back to the "DOSBox Games" folder I type CD..
A frontend is a graphical user interface that hides all the command line / mounting complexity for you.
Best part is that once you have your "DOSBox Games" folder setup and everything works, you can just add new games into that folder without having to change anything.
ScummVM isn't an emulator. It's really an interpreter. It won't have these timing bugs or whatever as the interpreter will take care of all of that.
IMO ScummVM is perfect for you. Apart from the last KQ game, it supports all the others, so you should really check it out! It has a huge following with excellent support on their site as well.

What is the config saying for kq7 on the windows Dosbox? Then we can help

This image must be created using the standard Hard Disk Utility found in your Mac OS /Applications/Utilities folder, be sure to format it with HFS Standard. Also be sure to install the HSF.FST inside the GS/OS operating system to get it mounted in the GS.
I think it is the same for IIGS versions of the ScummVM supported games (I've added the IIGS version of KQ4 to the ScummVM list as well) as for all games supported, so simply copy the KQ4GS folder onto a data exchange disk image, mount that image in Mac Finder, copy the folder onto your Mac hard disk and browse ScummVM to it.
ScummVM will not recognize disk images as such, but only the files (in a Folder browsed to) it needs to play the games.
Hint: While in ScummVM GUI, hold down the shift key to change the "Add Game" button to a "Mass Add" functionality. This fill search a given folder for all games ScummVM supporte.

Basic scripting is done but needs fine tuning and needs to be done for each game. Could be another couple of months.

Seriously I'm most of the time too beat at night to wrap my mind about the stuff even though it's not too hard to finish it. I hope to be more productive in autumn/winter. I'm still thinking about it and have some solutions in mind.
