I've always used natbib (the package to customize references inside
distribution. makebst is not as hard to use as it seems ---basically,
you run it with

latex makebst

in a terminal and answer a bunch of questions. The worst that can
happen is that you make a mistake and have to start all over again.

Now ---there is biblatex:

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/exptl/biblatex/

I haven't tried yet, but seems really good.

Best,
