I'm not sure which is now the outstanding question, but I'll answer the one relating to dead keys, since I face the same situation when writing in Spanish. If you type <esc>a'<esc> you'll get the accentuated a; if you type <esc>n~<esc> you'll get the corresponding letter in Spanish (which I think you don't have in Portuguese, since I understand you use nh instead, like in "manha"), and so on. However, I don't recommend you use these accentuated characters in input cells (I use them only in text cells), since some confusion could arise if, for example, you use both the plain "a" and the accentuated one in a single expression, etc. For us Spanish-speaking people (as well as Portuguese, French and Italian), an "a" is an "a", and is no different - I mean in the written language - from the accentuated "a", where the accent plays only a phonetic role.
