I have this in ~/.Xmodmap ...
keycode 18 = less greater bar
keycode 58 = degree asciicircum
... and this in ~/.xsession:
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap &
After that, the pipe should be available with Alt+<
I can access the '@' with Alt+l (maybe you too).

I can get three-button emulation to work with this script:
echo "Setting core-mouse button 2 to key F11"
echo "87" > /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button2_keycode
echo "Setting core-mouse button 3 to key F12"
echo "88" > /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button3_keycode
echo "Activating core-mouse button emulation"
echo "1" > /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/mouse_button_emulation
## The keys are defined in /usr/src/linux/include/linux/input.h
