In Excel you can drag a cell without highlighting it but it requires to grab the cell border, which I find more difficult (at least it depends on my current eye-hand coordination).

Hold Shift, press an arrow key and then the opposite arrow (expand to range selection of 2 cells and then back to single cell)
I respectfully disagree; no-one tells you how hard to press on the gas pedal after you buy a car. ALL software takes getting used to. Select the cells, let go. Click somewhere in the selected area [and hang on.] Drag to wherever you need. If this is the worst of your worries, you are blessed.

I was already doing what you suggest and it wasn't working (because in OO you have to click, THEN press Ctrl if you want to copy cells) You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Start off nice, you can always escalate to dismissive-nerd-mode later if need be.
