Wow, hmmm. OS 9 is not open source. The main technical reference for the classic Mac OS is a series called Inside Macintosh. But they are dated books. There are still references to them in older technical guides found on Apple's Developer pages. You may want to take a look at this Mac OS 8 and 9 Development page.
