Files starting with dots are hidden files on Mac. The emacs configuration
file .emacs should be in your home directory. You can list all files - also
the hidden ones - by `ls -a` in your console. I don't use Mac so I can't

If you still can't find the file, you might have better chances by asking
in some Emacs forum.

Alternatively you can use R-studio instead of emacs/ess.

website.  In my EMACS application, ESS is available (verified by typing M-X
