Low-cost airline transfers are non-protected even if you fly with the same airline on both legs, which is why they typically won't show up in a search.

The FAQ has a whole section on regular (non-web) check-in and mentions “check-in desk” without hinting at extra costs so it seems pretty safe to conclude that checking in at the airport is possible (I have not done it myself). Also, Can I choose my seat when I check in? implies that choosing a seat should not cost you anything: You can check in and ...

Just call the airlines shown on the itinerary (if American, call American), and tell them the details of the flight. I booked mine easily, and I only paid an extra 25 bucks as booking charge. The price was as came up on the ITA search engine.
