    ...the first six icons on the dock. Rectangular marquee (for making rectangular selections (shortcut R), elliptical marquee for making circular selections (shortcut E), lasso tool to draw a selection (shortcut F), magic wand tool to select continuous regions of color (shortcut Z)...etc.

    Are you talking about the Path Selection or Direct Selection tool, like in Photoshop, which is keyboard shortcut A?

    I don't think GIMP has that feature yet however there could a plugin out there for it.

    Yes, those are the Path Selection (black) and Direct Selection (white) tools. I don't think they exist in GIMP. Try the Bezier Selection tool instead.
