For vim: yes. See help on :digraphs.

In short: for <char> type <sequence>:
    (n with tilde):  control-k n ?
    (i with acute):  control-k i '
    (u with umlaut): control-k u :

For Firefox: I believe you need to have a keymap that includes a compose
key. I've never gotten this to work; I've just copied characters from
vim (either in a uxterm or vim -g) on the rare occasions I've needed to
paste an accented character into Firefox. This will not be satisfactory
for typing nontrivial amounts of Spanish, though. :(

On a related note, does anyone know how to disable the keybinging
control-w = close tab in Firefox?
