@Exterior Sounds like a LyX specific problem. You should ask a separate question.

I think it would be a good idea to update your question asking how to change this specific function. If you also add a minimal document (see meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228) it will be easier for others to help you.

comment Creating an .sty file that is equivalent to \input{file}?
Welcome to TeX.SX! The only special thing about .sty files is really that @ is allowed as a character in command names, without having to write \makeatletter...\makeatother. So rename your input file to myfile.sty and try \usepackage{myfile}. If you need more help then please post a minimal working example (MWE) showing what problems you encounter.

comment latex2rtf omits space symbols in every unicode paragraph until first ASCII symbol
Welcome to TeX.SX! The manual page mentions that utf8 support is limited and the STIX fonts need to be on the system to get some symbols.

I see, the structure is rather different from that example. The function that needs changing is format.lab.names.abbr but I am not expert enough to do that correctly. Using makebst is a much simpler approach, but will not give you the exact same bibliography format. Otherwise, the modern recommendation is to switch to biblatex which is easier to coerce.
