    Copy and paste would be a great option that is not there yet. I have wanted/needed a copy/paste funtion quite a few times already. As far as pasting the text to notes, I don't think this is possible either. Hopefully someone can prove me wrong.

    copy/paste would be nice but not avail...

    as far as inserting custom notes, you can download erica's utilities so that you get the sqlite3 command in terminal after you get that you can create a sql script with your text to inject it into the notes.db, its not a straightforward task but if you are familiar with SQL you can do it

    the overall idea would be as follows

    create the sql insert statements with your text on your computer and save it into a text file
    upload that text file to your ipod
    open term
    run sqlite3 in a similar fashion to this, "sqlite3 Library/Notes/notes.db < /temp/mytext.sql"

    the first argument specifies the database you want to open and the second is the script you want to run against that db

    also be aware that the notes uses a simple form of html for the bodies

    <div>'s are used to create new lines and

    <div><br class=\"webkit-block-placeholder\"></div>
    is used to create a blank line

    also, the timestamp field is calculated from 1/1/2001 unlike most unix timestamps that are calculated from 1970

    i was in this same position you'll need;
    bsd subsystem
    for the ipod,
    and you'll need cyberduck for mac (or the widows program that does the same thing)
    1. install all the crap for the ipod and download the cyberduck for mac connect to your ipod(countless tutorials for this on youtube)
    2. save the file you want to work on in .txt format
    3. drag into private/var/root
    4. open textedit on ipod
    5. click "open"
    6. click "find in finder"
    7. your file should be there and just open it

    i use this so i can continue working on a paper wherever i go (bus, plane, car)

    Yes, I use textedit all the time to create text files on my ipod while on the move, mostly keyword laden entry pages for my web site. When I get back to the computer I can ssh the text files back off the ipod, pop them in my site builder and add the html links to the text. Being able to create plain text files was my main reason for jailbreaking, and I still think it is criminal Apple couldn't be arsed putting such a simple app on the iPhone and iPod Touch (notes is very different, and you just can't do the same thing with it easily)
