go into range mouse mode (press "r"), select a time range in a track
using the mouse (press-drag-release). copy (ctrl-c). select the target
track. paste (ctrl-v). it will appear at the location of the edit
cursor. to move it to precisely the same spot, right click, select the
region name, then from the submenu, "original position".

there is another approach as well, but try that one and see how it works
for you.
