Cmd + Opt + N = Normalize would save me a lot of time. Please allow custom keyboard commands in the next update. Being able to customize the main toolbar would be very helpful too.

No, you can't. It is on our backlog of features.

OSX does have a keyboard navigation facility for menus similar to Alt+pneumonics in Windows. It's not great, but it does work with Sound Forge for Mac.

In General Preferences->Keyboard:
- Keyboard tab: select your preferred mode for "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys". If disabled, you'll have to use the Fn key along with the F2 key below.
- Keyboard Shortcuts tab: select "Keyboard & Text" and enable "Move focus to the menu bar" (default is ^F2)

Now Normalize (for example) can be instantiated via: ^F2, P, down arrow, N, Return.

Again, not great, but that's the built-in OSX method if you are feeling particularly mouse/trackpad averse.

Normalize and several other processes also appear in the Plug-In Chooser tool. You can double-click it in there to instantiate if you are feeling particularly menu-averse.

I agree, this would save me a huge amount of time. This should be a standard feature in a pro audio editor! I am now using SF Pro Mac 2.5 and there is still no option to define a keyboard shortcut for this command. Surely all major functions should have a customisable keyboard shortcut? Please include in the next update.
