how do we know when you need "non" and when you don't preceding neither and nor?

Good question!

What is the difference between the two accented e's? As in the he/she/it conjugation of essere vs. the one in né.

They're pronounced differently, è is an open sound as in "fair", é is a narrow sound as in "day". The conjunction "e" is pronounced like é.
