If you link to calendar pages they should show up as "placeholders" in
the index. Did you try the option "link to date" in the dialog ?

You can use a colon ":" in a page name to create namespaces.

Alternatively this may be a good use for tags. E.g. create a namespace
with persons, but group them with tags. The tag plugin will give you
an alternative index where you can find the pages per tag.
