Compose is a feature that allows you to write any character you want, no matter the keyboard layout you are using, by pressing a certain key (Compose key) and a series of keys. You could, i.e., associate ‘~’ and ‘n’ characters so they get replaced by a ‘ñ’ character when they are pressed after pressing Compose key. There are many default key combinations, and you can customize Compose configuration file so it better fits your specific needs.
