Keyboard shortcuts in Parallels

I just installed Parallels 5 and Windows 7 on my iMac (9,1 running OS X 10.5.8). I am trying to run a text expander program that requires the use of the Insert key, but - there is no insert key on the iMac keyboard. I have searched the web and haven't been able to find a definitive answer to the question: what key replaces the Insert key? The program I have wants me to press Alt+Ins. I know Alt = option, but what key do I use in combination with that? Also, in general, now that I'm going to be running Windows apps on my iMac, is there a cheat sheet somewhere that will show me which keys on my keyboard correspond to the various function keys on a PC keyboard? I'm sure I'll be needing some of them eventually.
