Is there a way to export PC Layout or Modeler Menu config file,
to a Mac system?

I dont want to redo manualy all the interface that I did on my
LW on PC system

Option - F9, save
Option - F10, save
This creates text files of the menus and keyboard shortcuts. Then use the same Option/Fkey combo but load.

But on my PC F9 is render frame and F10 is render scene !

I got lightwave on a pc at home and I took much time to
build a interface menu that is perfect for me.

Now at the studio were I work, they got lightwave on mac
but with the default menu and keys config.

I try to copy the text of LW3.cfg from PC to the Layout menu pref
of the Mac but it does not work cause it seem that the file cant be
read by the mac after we change it.

Is there another way or im doing something wrong.

Sorry, on the PC it's ALT-F9 and ALT-F10.

You'll probably also need to go through and remove the PC-backslashes ( \ ) and replace them with Mac-colons ( : ) to specify directory paths for things like your content directory. Remember also that on PC, your drive will likely be called "C" whereas on Mac it's something like "MyHardDrive". If you have any references in your configs to "Recent Content Directories" and things like that, obviously you can delete them. Naturally, you'll also want to make sure that you have all the same plugins loaded on the Mac that you had on your PC.
