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.
