If Word does not automatically detect that you are writing in Spanish, then select the whole paragraph, go up to the tools menu and choose "language" "set language" "Spanish (Spain-traditional sort)" Misspelled words will now be underlined with a red squiggly line. Most of the time you can right click and it will give you some options.
How to do accents varies depending on what program you are working in. Here are some common methods:
Hold down the ALT key, type the number for the accent on the numeric keypad, let go of the ALT key:
á 160é 130í 161ó 162ú 163ñ 164¿ 168¡ 173ª 166º 167Ñ 165É 144
Once you've assigned these commands, entering the command (i.e., ALT + n) is all that is needed in order to write the special character. You will need to assign the following special characters:
¿ ¡ á é í ó ú ü ñ Á É Í Ó Ú Ü Ñ
