If you're using the natbib package,

\citeauthor{...}'s \citeyearpar{...}

I'd suggest, again with the natbib package

\citet[][: ch. 2]{label}

but I'm not absolutely sure where that will put the "ch. 2".

In the BibTeX database, enclose the letter you want to stay
capitalized in curly brackets, e.g.

title="Magneto-optical Sum Rules Close to the {M}ott Transition",
