Welcome to TWHL!

What does your liblist.gam look like and what two game DLLs are you using and where are they located?

// Valve Game Info file
// These are key/value pairs. Certain mods will use different settings.
game "Prueba"
startmap "2022_firstmap"
trainmap "t0a0"
mpentity "info_player_deathmatch"
gamedll "..\valve\dll\hl.dll"
gamedll_linux "dlls/hl.so"
gamedll_osx "dlls/hl.dylib"
secure "1"
type "singleplayer_only"

and im using the Dlls from half life but they arent in my mod folder

Replace \dll\ with \dlls\ and it should hopefully work :)
Also, replacing
gamedll_linux "dlls/hl.so"
gamedll_osx "dlls/hl.dylib"
gamedll_linux "../valve/dlls/hl.so"
gamedll_osx "../valve/dlls/hl.dylib"
should make your mod playable on Linux and MacOS.

Compatibility with MacOS is futile, Apple pulled 32-bit support years ago. I suppose if you have an older Mac it would still work, but who does?

If you don't want stress from terminal like I made shell script simple for studiomdl, Wally etc.

You need to download Wine for macOS

You should write as shell script for studiomdl.exe, Wally.exe and other.
/Applications/Wine/Contents/macOS/wine /Applications/Walla/Wally.exe "$@"
If you can't run native on macOS then you need use Porton from Steam
Find property of Half-Life then switch Compatibility then you can choose whatever you want version of Porton.
You find easy path $HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Porton XX
XX <- means version number of Porton.

If you want develop HL-SDK then you need to install XCode from App Store or DVD of macOS.
Hl-SDK find directory linux and makefile can work also on macOS.
For modelling you need to install Blender and Blender Source Tools it works also macOS. But you need create shell script like I wrote beginning if you download studiomdl by The303 website then place to /Applications/ModelCompiler/studiomdl.exe for shell scripts should be active by $PATH like Linux also .
But I believe that you need access sudo like sudo cp studiomdl /usr/local/bin and execute sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/studiomdl

Enjoy runtimable gaming :)

They're likely using Windows

Eh? Windows-User?
But Half-Life Fans are using also on Linux or macOS too. But I have great support for Linux and macOS-Users. :D
