Not too much, I think. The basic how-to is the same. Then, is just a matter of the language you choose to use.

2) Is there a different programming language

Probably the "recommanded" language is Objective-C, along with the Cocoa framework, using the X-Code developement tools (witch is included with the OS / downloadable for free). But there are many other options, from the usual C/C++ & Java, to some multiplatform VB-like language like RealBASIC, just to name a couple of them.

Bye!
