I'd wager an evening's beer that emacs had cut and paste at least a 
decade before WYSIWYG-style word processors even existed. In fact, under 
X, it is as easy as you can imagine. Left-click at one endpoint, and 
right-click at the other endpoint. Your selection is highlighted and 
automatically sent to a kind-of clipboard. Now move to the insertion 
point, and center-click (possibly that's left+right simultaneously if 
you have a crippled mouse). Alternatively, Ctrl-K kills a line and 
successive uninterrupted Ctrl-K actions accumulate those lines to the 
same clipboard. Now moving to the insertion point and Ctrl-W pastes 
those accumulated lines.

Of course, these suggestions don't even scratch the surface of emacs's 
cut-and-paste capabilities, which far exceed any editor I've ever 
experienced. I recommend Googling "emacs tutorial" after being prepared 
to learn some new techniques... Also, it sounds like doing a UNIX course 
might be a good idea :-)
