Some keyboards (Finnish, for example) can produce those characters
(semi-)directly but through Emacs's input methods it's possible with
just basic Ascii keys. For example, turn on "TeX" input method (C-x RET
C-\ TeX RET) and type \=a for "ā" and \=i for "ī". You can also use
"ucs" input method and type Unicode code points directly: type u0101 for
"ā" and u012b for "ī".

There are probably some language-specific input methods too which may
have even easier ways for inputting these characters.
