Take the Accent to AutoZone. They will scan the code (free) and give you a print-out with a "general" explanation (free). They can also reset it properly.
Let us know the codes and a summary of the print-out. We will advise you.
Answers to your questions:
The sensors at the cat are O2 (Oxygen) sensors.
Problem could be the cat or could be a faulty sensor. My money is on the O2 sensor.
Could be lots of things, like sticky fuel injector...
Don't change the catalytic convertor just yet.
My opinion is that the "shop" doesn't really know and is hoping that replacing the cat will fix it all (my opinion).
If you eventually change out the cat, go to a local muffler shop, not a national chain. They will do the same job for a lot less and not try to sell you other stuff.

Testimonial: "there are no fault codes! Reset yesterday only 20 miles so far so good"
if vehicle has less than 200,000 kms then i think cat is ok ,check the O2 sensors with a automotive meter rather than reading the obdii ,which i cannot do anyway in europe but at least you will know if they work or not their are two O2 sensors on each cat one before the and one after ,unless this is a high mileage vehicle i dont think the cats will be gone
