I?ll like to recall what I mentined in post N° 34:

Let's return to basics:

Si = if
Sí = yes or itself

Emphasizing is not so easy, I would not recommended at your level. In any case, "pero" = but, used before or after "sí" will emphasize or attenuate the "sí". Then, "pero sí" means "yes indeed". Conversely: "sí pero ..." means "yes but..."

Finally, "qué" means what or why and has to be used with the double exclamation (¡!) or ponctuation signs (¿?).
