How Do I Go About Code Signing a MacOS Application?

There is a professor at the university I work at that has developed a MacOS application he needs to get signed so that it doesn't get blocked by MacOS when users try to run it. I've gotten his CSR and gotten an Apple Developer cert created for him (using the 'ad hoc' distribution option, which created a cert file named 'distribution.cer').

I've searched the Apple Developer site for information on how to sign the application using XCode, but I can't quite grasp the instructions, not being an XCode user or Apple dev.

From what I can gather, you can also sign an app from a terminal, is that correct? If so, does it only work with .pkg installers, or also pre-compiled applications (.app files)?
