The information for the citation is taken from the one-letter keys
in \startpublication. In your case, you need to add an 'a=' key
containing the author information you want to see referenced.

I take you are not using bibtex. It may help if you create a
dummy test file *with* bibtex, just to see what comes out of that.

The bibliographic style needs to be translated to german. For the
APA style, this is done already  (I  believe by Peter Münster, but
it is possible I remember wrong). You have to start with

\setuppublications[alternative=apa-de]

to use that file (bibl-apa-de.tex). If you are unhappy with the output,
you can (have to) copy bibl-apa-de.tex to some other name starting
with bibl- and edit that file.

I wouldn't give this much thought. Just use

\chapter{Neurtitel}
\placepublications

instead. That is all that \completepublications does, anyway.
