I can't provide a 100% accurate answer (I don't really mess with multi-lingual charsets).  Just wanted to respond to the one item about NLS_LANG:

NLS_LANG on the client must be set to the correct language for the data (based on reading).  It won't affect the DB, just the data translation between the client and the server.
