That is correct. Basically it is [[cite:key][pre text::post text]]

You can run M-x org-ref-help to get the manual for org-ref. It is
described near the end in this section:

You can type C-c C-l, select the link type, then the bibtex key, then
type in the description. There is no way to do it through helm-bibtex though.

Probably not to docx. There are exports defined for ’html, ’latex,
’ascii, ’org, ’md, and ’pandoc.  HTML works pretty well, LaTeX works,

Not that I know of.
