What part doesn't answer your question?

You register the key sequence (Ctrl + Y)


when its pressed, you can assign it to do what you want - in your case put some text somewhere



  private
    { Private declarations }
    Procedure WMHotkey( Var msg: TWMHotkey ); message WM_HOTKEY;





procedure TForm1.WMHotkey( Var msg: TWMHotkey );
  Begin
    If msg.hotkey = 1 Then
   Begin
    //paste the text you want to paste where you want to paste it!
    // example
   //edit1.text:= SomeText;
   End;
  End;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
if RegisterHotKey(Handle,1, MOD_CONTROL ,ord('Yy)) = false then
      MessageDlg('Failed to register Hot Key',mtError,[mbOk],0);
end;

procedure TForm1.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
begin
  UnRegisterHotkey( Form1.Handle, 1 );
end;

      MessageDlg('Failed to register Hot Key',mtError,[mbOk],0);


procedure TForm1.WMHotkey( Var msg: TWMHotkey );
  Begin
    If msg.hotkey = 1 Then
   Begin
    //paste the text you want to paste where you want to paste it!
