Some (sloppy) code I threw together when I was playing with "CocoaPromptUser" which shows a macOS correct modal dialog.
The idea was to make an overload for MessageDlg (the last parameter, the form, would be the difference).
(I've also posted my code also in the official Lazarus forum)

The example dialog looks like this:

Maybe it is useful to someone ... 😊 

 

unit Unit1;

{$mode objfpc}{$H+}
{$modeswitch objectivec1}

interface

uses
  Classes, SysUtils, Forms, Controls, Graphics, Dialogs, StdCtrls
  , CocoaInt, CocoaAll;

type

  { TForm1 }

  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private

  public

  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.lfm}

function MessageDlg( aCaption, aMsg: string; DlgType: TMsgDlgType; Buttons: TMsgDlgButtons; HelpCtx: Longint; DefaultButton: TMsgDlgBtn; const Sender:TForm): TModalResult;
var
  ButtonArrayPtr     : PLongint;            // Pointer to the button array
  ButtonCount        : Integer;             // Number of buttons
  Counter            : integer;
  NSParentWindow     : NSWindow;            // Parent Form that the sheet is attached to
  DlgTypeID          : longint;             // DialogType for conversion from TMsgDlgType
  ButtonIDs          : array of Longint;    // ButtonTypes for conversion from TMsgDlgBtn array
  ButtonPressed      : longint;             // ModalResult which gets converted to TModalResult
  aButton            : TMsgDlgBtn;
  DefaultButtonIndex : integer;
  ReversedButtons    : TMsgDlgButtons;
begin
  // Show regular message dialog if no form assigned or form not showing
  if (not Assigned(Sender)) or (not Sender.Visible) then
    begin
      Result := MessageDlg(aCaption, aMsg, DlgType, Buttons, HelpCtx, DefaultButton, Sender);
      exit;
    end;

  { Convert array of TMsgDlgBtn to idButtonXYZ (See LCLType) and convert default button (TMsgDlgBtn) to index }
