You posted in the wrong section but I'm sure some help will be right along to help move this post.

I've moved this thread to the Evo V section, as you're on VM.

I have a rooting guide that is posted here: Complete Newbie's Guide to rooting and flashing Evo V 4G ROMs/Kernels using fastboot

You should be able to unlock/root via HTCDEV. I believe the process is the same except for adding "./" before the commands. I haven't done it though, so I can't tell you much more than that.

I don't think s-off is possible on a mac, but I could be wrong.

You need to download virtual box so you can run Windows and then you should be able to put adb and the java sdk on Windows so you can unlock the bootloader with the HTC dev method

You can do the HTCdev method natively on a mac.

This guide was written for the Rezound, but it's the same deal. Just use the files for your device.

No problem, your suggestion would have worked, it just would have been more complicated. I was only clarifying.
