I think the letter chi should be accepted as well.

I've studied linguistics and I'm familiar with the IPA, and it kind of confuses me that the correct equivalent of "χ" is "h" and not "x", since the sound that "χ" makes is represented in the IPA as "x". To me, it's nothing at all like "h".

That won't do at all. I just wrote ‘το γράμμα ψ’ in response to a similar question, and I was told that I had a typo and the correct answer was ‘το γράμμα ψι’. Now I wrote ‘το γράμμα χι’, and I'm told that I have a typo and the correct answer is ‘το γράμμα χ’. Consistency?

Im struggling with the acute accents (´) like where and when to use them. Is it about pronunciation or about the vowels and such?

It's a little bit like Spanish in that it just marks which syllable gets stressed.
