vi vim paste function

Hello,
I searched the internet, but I will continue to search.  Meanwhile allow me to ask;
When using vi or vim, and capturing/cutting text, which now that text is in the buffer.  How can I paste that text into the vi/vim text file "WITHOUT USING THE RIGHT BUTTON OF THE MOUSE."  I would like to keep my fingers on the keyboard, apply some command like lp, or ap (which these two do not work), and paste the text into the vi text.
thanks

while in command mode (press ESC key) you can move the cursor to the line where you want to paste before or after, then press p or P to paste after or before

You should put in the paste mode
Esc
:se paste

Then you can use shift + insert instead of right mouse click
