Start with the basics first, especially from your question #2, it looks like you're new to programming in general.

It is common practice to use the .h (header) file to define structures, classes and function prototypes that you implemented in .c/.cpp (source) files. The source files will include your local header file along with others to accomplish it's task..

Before you try to run towards a GUI program, first spend some time learning a programming language. In Mac, programs are usually written in Objective-C, but C++ is also good for games.

To answer your last question, most professional game development houses use a game engine that they bought or have developed on their own. Think Unreal engine from ID, the Crysis engine from CryTek, and so on..
