I'm looking for IDEs for macOS and/or Windows with a GUI builder for desktop applications.

Which ones would you recommend? Especially for macOS desktop applications with GUI.

I don't care about the programming language as long as the compiled application runs on macOS, and it has a GUI.

So far, I know Xcode, Xojo, Netbeans, Eclipse, MS Visual Studio, Jetbrain and more.

I would recomend Code::Blocks, using it myself for creating desktop applications with GUI and as programming language C++. The IDE is cros platform, so should work with macOS. Also if you prefer Python over C++, should work as well.
