Just ctrl-click (or right-click, if you have a multiple-button mouse), and
select "Show Package Contents", and a new window will open, showing the
contents of the application folder.

.nib files open in Interface Builder, which is part of the Developer Tools.
Developer Tools either were included when you bought Jaguar, or you can
download them (after registering) from Apple's developer site.
