Both in chat and when posting comments, an autocomplete box shows up for users. Autocomplete users
Can this be made so you can select the user using the up arrow key, then the right/left arrows? So, let's take the example above. I push the up arrow to highlight "memilanuk", then the right arrow key to highlight "mankoff", and press Enter to select "mankoff". I hope this makes sense...but could it be implemented? I find it somewhat annoying that I have to use the mouse to select the name.

You don't have to use the mouse. You can use the Tab key to cycle to the list (or Shift-Tab to cycle backwards).
