comment How do I import specific fields from a shapefile?
Imported to where? Do you just want to delete fields from an existing shapefile? Do you want only certain fields displayed in ArcMap when you add it to a project/MXD?

Can you be more specific about what you're importing from?

My original answer covered this, but I expanded upon it quite a bit just now to hopefully clarify a little.

That way uses WFS, exactly as I said you should use. It's just a helper function to setup a WFS selection control based on an existing WMS layer, since their URL's will be so similar. It would still use the WFS protocol, which the geoserver instance you are querying against must be configured to support.

I guess it depends on this mysterious bug. I can't find it documented anywhere. Is is just that the XY Event source process can't handle this particular encoding, or is it that regardless of data source, ArcGIS can't display these characters?

If this is a known bug in 10.2, and if upgrading is out, is converting the excel file to a shapefile in QGIS or maybe using Arcpy/python an option for you?

What language is the text? English? Japanese? Does it display properly with a more standard font? And what is the datasource for your XY event layer? Excel? CSV? DBF?

Then what you're asking for is not likely possible with the current set of requirements. WMS does not support bounding box queries, only point query with an optional radius, so you could maybe do a bounding circle query. See also gis.stackexchange.com/questions/72358/… which is basically a duplicate of your question with a similar answer.

isn't that the same link I posted? Anyway, I'm not sure you're able to do that. The bbox param of a WMS GetfeatureInfo request is the displayed map extent, not a bounding box for querying. The best you can do with WMS is a point and/or a radius around it. Not a bounding box. However, I'm no expert, so maybe there is. Do you control the WMS server in question? Why is a WFS request ruled out?

comment Understanding desc.fields
it might be helpful to print out desc.dataType (after the line desc = arcpy.Describe(file)) just to verify the feature class is what you think it is. You might also try the ListFields function on that feature class and see what you get.
