Manipulate OS X Tags from Max ?

    Hi Is there a way i can manipulate OS X Tags from Max ? (Repost because it was in the wrong category) For example here is a screenshot illustrating* what i want to do. I would like to change the tags on the left in the 'finder get info box', by clicking on a board of textbuttons. So I need to be able extract the tags from a file as well as writing/suppressing tags. (* The patch doesn't do anything right now, just made that for illustration)
    ( Ideally I was imagine some kind of Automator+Max combination in some sort of way to be able to see, while selecting files in the finder, my "board of tags" in my Max patch on the side, updating to the last file selected... not sure if that would be possible. Or I would have to drag the file into a dropfile object i guess. I probably would use my board of tags from Mira, or DuetDisplay, to make it more convenient while tagging plenty of files, sounds, musics, later videos, images, etc to classify. )
    Note : I heard there are commands which deal with Mac OS Tags ( http://brettterpstra.com/2017/08/22/tagging-files-from-the-command-line/ ) and i heard you can send terminal commands from Max. But terminal commands are like real chinese for me so any help on that would be welcome. ...Maybe mxj or js can send communicate with the terminal too ?
