When I searched online, it says that I need to save it as new difficulties but I can't find it. I am using a mac.

Since I heard that there is no good solution to this yet, here is one way you can go about doing it:
1. Go into the song folder
2. Copy a .osu file
3. Open the map, and change"Version:" to the diff name you want
4. Change the .osu filename to have the diff name you want.
5. Reload osu! and your new diff should be there.

more clearly.
I did all the other steps and I did get a new map but I cannot edit it. One of them is it keeps on saying 'Error loading audio for this beatmap'. The other problem is that whenever I tried to open the new one to edit it, it won't let me and tells me 'beatmap audio could not be loaded successfully'.

If you got that far, then I don't think you need to worry about step 3, but in case you care, open up your .osu file in some textpad and search for "Version:" .The text after that should

As for the audio problem, that usually means that "AudioFilename:" is not pointing toward the right file (find the same way as I said for step 3)

should what?
I did manage to open it in a textpad but there is nothing after it. I change it to the name I want. As for the AudioFileName, I name it exactly as I have named my audio file but when I open osu!, the new and original beatmap couldn't find the audio file and I have to delete the two beatmap and start all over again.
Can you explain to me what exactly should I put after "Version:" and "AudioFileName:"?

I don't think we are getting anywhere quickly. Just zip up your map folder and upload it somewhere. I'll just fix it from there.

I know this is a stupid question but how exactly do I upload it. I managed to zip it. I know how to upload something but just how do I upload it onto osu! :? sorry :cry:

Just upload it using any 3rd party service. (puush, mediafire, mega, etc. are all fine.)

I know this reply might be a bit late, but did you spot any buttons (eg: File, Edit, View) at the top of the edit screen? (Above "Compose", "Design", etc.)

Just asking because I do use a Mac as well, and I can save new difficulties. The buttons, such as File, Edit, View, etc are all hidden on my editor. (I don't know why, apparently.) But there is a space between "Compose", "Design" and the Window. Click anywhere between and see if the buttons exist.

Edit: Example here:
