RE: Selecting a part of a line and then copy or cut it and then paste is somewhere.

around, ie, hit the start where you want to begin highlighting, then
move 'til the end.
v characterwise highlighting
V linewise highlighting
Then once highlighted, you could yank to a clipboard, use as the
affected text of a 's', 'x', 'r' command, etc.
Eg, if I wanted to change "yank" to "put" in the above sentence, I could
and be done with it. Try it.
Instead of 'e' to get to the end of the word, I could do "10e", '$', use
the arrows, whatever I wanted to encompass the text I wanted to affect,
then use whatever operators to effect those changes. 'x' or <del> to
delete, 's' to substitute, etc.
