In general, a citation is conceptually a kind of specialized link.
And org-ref and now org-cite is designed around the possibility of
attaching actions to those citations. So, for example:

The oc-basic processor has an at-point function that will do just
this, if by "reference" you mean the bibtex (and maybe ultimately csl
json) source entry.
Have you looked at org-roam and org-roam-bibtex?
If not, that might give you some ideas, as it heavily relies on org
links, but also has support for citations.
Plans there are to support org-cite, BTW.
