One of the things you can do about the publishers is to handle them as
authorized values. See
and also http://manual.koha-community.org/16.05/en/basicparams.html#newauthvalcat

Typically I would add a new authorized value category - PUBCODE and
define the publishers in that. So if you have the authorized value in
your bibliographic data, Koha should map it to the "Description" value
in the authorized value.

As for cataloging guide, this may help you

About what fields to use, the ones to look at are 100, 110, 111 and
corresponding 700, 710, 711, and also 245 (statement of
responsibility). For the 1XX and the 7XX fields mentioned here,
typically $4 (relator code) and $e (relator term) takes care of
identifying the role of person so named in the record.

Look up the following:



https://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd111.html (in this case
relator term is mapped in $j)

Similarly see 700, 710, 711 from LOC.

Also see https://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd245.html (see the
examples - particularly for 245$c; look out for "illustrated")

Example record:

if you look at the MARC view of the record, the answer will be self-evident :-)

hope this helps,
