I'm not sure you can do that, but you can certainly bind a key to a
command that doesn't do anything. For instance you could create a
command like this...
Key Equivalent: ^J
Scope Selector: (leave blank, so it works in all scopes, or enter a
scope if you want)
Then whenever you hit ^J, it will run this shell script that doesn't
do anything. It's not the most elegant thing but it should do what
you want, which is to make ^J have no consequence.
Ale's method was using the system keyboard mapping to rebind to items
in the menu. But in TextMate specifically, if you create a keybinding
in the bundle editor, it will override the bindings in the menus, so
you can use this method to override with a new action, or neuter a
keybinding as shown above.
Also, you can type ñ with this sequence: Option-n, n
