I'm hacking the US version of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, and I'd like to adjust the width of the special characters I've added (like "á", "ï", "ò", "û"...). Are they usually near the font, or they can be found anywhere?

Here you will want to first find whether the text is OAM/sprite or BG (it should be BG for most games as it is the better option but assuming devs, much less Konami handheld devs, follow best practice is not a good bet) and watch it get from memory into VRAM. Once you have found the text handling engine, and it is not hard to get most games to display some text on command, it should just be a matter of finding out how it gets the value to space the next character.
