I don't know about Spanish keyboards.

On a french/belgian keyboard, however, some accented letters have their
own key (é è à ù), and for the rest of them we have dead keys. So for Ó,
I have <dead-acute> O.

The curly quotes OTOH are inconvenient to type for me. In emacs I now
know I can use "C-x 8 [" but that's 6 keys to press (numbers are shifted keys
unless I move to the numpad, and opening square bracket is obtained by
pressing AltGr and another key). I don't know yet how to type it outside
emacs. M-a M-k. I just found out how to type them outside emacs:
<compose> < ' is ‘ and <compose > ' is ’.
