comment problem running Tex on os 10.9.2
This is a duplicate. In the linked question, you will find both a command line and a non-command line answer to it. In your Applications/TeX folder there should be a package installer FixMacTeX2013.pkg. Run that, and it should solve the problem for you.

comment Smaller roofs for forest
The width of the triangle is based on the width of the node which is determined by the width of the longest line in the node. So I don't think there's a simple way to do this.

comment TeXShop: Change Stationery location
And for those of you not using Macs, if the question looks fairly OS specific (or in this case editor specific) you might also want to hold off and let those OS users (in this case Mac users) or users of that specific editor have a go at it before deciding that it's unclear. The question as asked was perfectly clear to me as a TeXShop user.
