    Well my application NDSCreator will soon come out and may have support for Mac and Windows.
    Otherwise, use Parallels Desktop.

    DS App Studio will be compatible for the Mac, but it will not be out for Mac until DS App Studio is complete for Windows.

    DS Game Maker won't be available for the Mac.

    My honest advice is to ignore the Game Maker programs and go learn PALib or LibNDS. I prefer LibNDS over PALib but both are better for overall control of the game and give you the chance to learn programming skills to transfer over to other programming projects. You will have to run a virtual machine as far as I know (I don't use a Mac)

    It's really hard to start with though, so if you're just looking to make a quick game then DS Game Maker may be the right option for you.

    I'm only 15 years old and after a year I want to do a game designer study so I just want to have some experience before I'm going to do the study

    Well, to begin with; C isn't a very hard language to learn. Actually, proper games aren't made with "DS Game Makers" or any other frontend, but C++, or LUA.
    Buy some books on C or check here:
    http://www.cprogramming.com/
    People also refer to PAlib as a program, but it's a library -A set of commands for C/C++.

    "Mac using a special kind of C"
    Well first of all, a language doesn't come with an OS. You install it mostly.
    Check here: Programming DS for Mac
