INSERT INTO TABLE table_name VALUES (column-name) VALUES ( ' \101' );
I don't know why the docs claim so, '\OCTAL_NUMBER' seems to work
BTW, 'A' is not 041 in octal, it is 101.

If you are going to use Japanese only, EUC_JP will take less storage
space. So, in general EUC_JP is recommended.

Currently no. But it would be easy to implement such a function. What
comes in mind is:
pg_available_encodings([INTEGER how]) RETURNS setof TEXT
where how is
0(or omitted): returns all available encodings
1: returns encodings in backend
2: returns encodings in frontend
