The mobipocket format as a special align="poetry" attribute that should right-align wrapped lines. I don't know if the Kindle supports it, and you probably need to use a set of <p></p> for each line.

You can also use the font-variant attribute to create small caps
As all CSS, that depends on the converter. The mobipocket format does not support any kind of CSS, only a kind of pseudo-HTML language. Most converters, however, can recognize at least some CSS and transform it into something mobipocket likes. In the case of small-caps, you probably end up with something like: T<font size="-1">HE</font> C<font size="-1">OMING</font> <font size="-1">OF</font> S<font size="-1">PRING</font>

Lots has been said about curly quotes
And one of the things I have said several times already is that you cannot trust any automatic parser, you should always at least manually check the result, particularly when there are apostrophes at the beginning of a word (like 'em, 'tis, 'ouse...), and worse if they are mixed with single quotes.
