    Hope I'm getting you right.

    Just copy the folder 'iChats' in your documents folder.

    Any program on mac to transfer messages

    I'm not sure if this is what you want, but I use iMacsoft iPhone SMS to Mac Transfer to transfer my SMS to Mac as a txt file(.txt file).If you want to learn more about it there's a step by step user guide on How to transfer or backup SMS from iPhone to Mac
    Step 1: Connect your iPhone to Mac
    Step 2: Click "SMS" icon in the iPhone list. Several minutes later, all messages in iPhone are displayed in the interface.
    Step 3: Check and find out the SMS you want to transfer, then click "Export the checked to local" button. Immediately, you can look through all iPhone SMS you transfer as .txt format in the Mac desktop.
    That's all.

    iExplore. It also gives you the option of exporting to a txt or PDF file, pretty cool. You can also export every MMS photo someone has ever sent you into individual folders.
