Regarding robust covariance matrices for two-step estimators, there was an article by James Hardin in the Stata Journal (2002, v. 2, #3). The tricky part is in getting all of the required derivatives.

There is an article by Angrist and Imbens in the Journal of the American Statistical Association (1995, v. 90, #430) that discusses treatment effect estimation with variable treatment intensities.
