I used refer a great deal when writing my thesis a few years ago.
I had occasion to use accented letters in names and the like, but
did so as follows:

%A D. Lelgemann
%D October 1981
%J Manuscripta Geod\(aetica
%N 2
%P 157-191
%T On Numerical Properties of Interpolation with Harmonic Kernel Functions
%V 6
%K QB275 .B84
%W McKimmie library

This worked quite well for me.  Perhaps it will be a solution for
you too.

I cannot help you with your other problem.
