You can type it in. I don't know what exactly is listed in the default
dropdown menu and why.

Type cmd-shift-g in the Finder. In the dialog box that appears, type /
usr/local/share/lazarus. You'll find the application there. You can
create an alias to it (shortcut in Windows terms) by holding down cmd
and option (= cmd and alt) and dragging the Lazarus application icon
anywhere you want. Then you won't have to remember its installation
location anymore when you want to use it again.

No, you don't, except if you want to the command line stuff. And DOS
was actually a partial imitation of Unix, not the other way around.

As I said, it won't help you in particular with these issues, because
Lazarus is not behaving like an OS X app at this time.
