This is basically what doi-add-bibtex-entry does. There isn't one
function that does arxiv too, but there is arxiv-add-bibtex-entry. Those
are both commands in org-ref. These don't pop up a buffer for approval,
that is something you would have to build yourself.

There are many workflows people want, the one above works for me when I
am writing, and just want to add entries with minimal disruption. I
usually polish the entries later if needed. I can see a slower, approach
like you describe too.
