ConTeXt has at least three different mechanisms to deal with
bibliographies by now (one is actually using BibTeX, one is using pure
ConTeXt setups for new entries, the third one is new/unstable and
allows entries in "arbitrary" format). From what I understand at least
the last two approaches circumvent BibTeX completely, so bst files are
not used at all.

I admit that I never tried to change spacing or remove the dots after
initials, but I would be surprised if doing that would require
fiddling with bst. I always controlled how a specific entry is
represented (when I wanted modifications) by a relatively readable
ConTeXt setup, but others should comment about specifics.
