    Such as in spanish
    For seo would ñinas.com be better than ninas.com? (assume I can only buy one and its pure seo)

    It's spelled niñas (meaning girls and/or little girls), NOT ñinas, which is pretty useless. AFAIK IDN domains are the same as regular ones for SEO purposes.

    This is strange, I had never though about this in my life but actually read something about it today. If you register a name that appears with special characters it is actually treated with those characters (like character mapping, ã might actually be made with like a673 or something strange). So the normal would be better or you will end up with something that is obfuscated - not to readers but to machines.
