I'm not sure how much I can help out as I have a PC and not a MAC.
About the only two program that will run ADAM programs are the ones that you mentioned.
Virtual ADAM is a front end for the program ADAMem that uses DOSBox. ADAMem is an old program that is clunkly to use and VirtualADAM makes it easy. It will run almost all ADAM software without a hitch. My Super Zaxxon disk image runs perfectly and you can even save high scores. Maybe you have a bad disk image and should try a different one. Maybe Virtual ADAM doesn't work work correctly on a MAC computer running Windows mode. I don't know. I can't help you there. Virtual ADAM has a built in Help file but maybe not too helpful with error messages.
MESSUI will run the Super Zaxxon disk image as well BUT you must have a version .141 or before. After .141 they broke ADAM emulation to try to make it more accurate and so far have not succeeded.
Do any other disk images or cartridge images work with either program?

http://messui.the-chronicles.org/howto.html Read this page, particularly about mess.ini - you should be able to restore the menus in MESSUI 0.141

Oh my...I'm not sure if editing an .ini file is quite for me...but maybe I'll try later.

In MESS, even though it says Adam emulation does not work, I've actually managed to get it to boot into some typewriter program. What I'd like to do is try to load up a sample game, I have Super Zaxxon on .dsk file, but I can't for the life of me figure out how.
