A reference would be good for whoever is going to design the glyphs.
Somebody provided me with excellent references for the Catalan glyphs
and it really helped my work. I'd imagine that a similar reference for
the schwa would also be very helpful.

Yes, if you have a glyph already defined for a character, and you want
to add a glyph for the character with a diacritic, then (in my
experience) it's not difficult as long as there are other glyphs with
the same diacritic. It can be a little more complicated when the
diacritics of uppercase letters have are slightly different to those of
the corresponding lowercase letters, but not overly so.
