Would you consider using the chinese-sisheng input method? That has
mappings for all of those. In fact, digging some more, thereʼs the
hawaiian-prefix method as well, which has far fewer mappings, so
shouldn't interfere too much with normal typing.
Otherwise it could be added to the C-x 8 map, but Iʼm having a hard
time finding a prefix thatʼs both free and reasonably mnemonic for
MACRON, unless we want to turn 'C-x 8 =' into a prefix map, with
'C-x 8 = =' meaning 'insert MACRON'.
