For some of these you can use precomposed characters. See e with
macron (U+0112 & U+0113) and o with macron (U+014D & U+014E).
For m and n with macron, you need two characters each, and in your
font you will want to define a ligature so that these character pairs
map to single glyphs with the desired positioning of the pieces.
The positioning problems that you found are because you are using a
font that does not have ligatures for these and instead the macron
glyph is superimposed on the m/n glyph. The result is legible (I hope)
but ugly, and to make it look nice, a ligature is necessary.
You can still have single keystrokes for these characters - some
keystrokes just have to emit more than one character internally.
