First, you really need to become familiar with the use of the Terminal
Application as this will be needed to build Wine.
Second, building Wine on the Mac is described in the web page that Dan
Kegel provided.

One major thing that you WILL have to do is install XCode, the OSX
program construction product.

There is no 'video' step-by-step for building Wine on the Mac that I'm
aware of.  However, I do use a bash script created by Ryan called
osxwinebuilder.  Google for it.  This may be easier than building and
building and building.  I can assist with using this script and
building Wine using it.
