Something like:
Two hidden buttons that appear when hovering over a field. 
Button "Copy"

global gCopy
on myCopy
put the name of the target into tTemp
put the text of field tTemp into gCopy
end myCopy

Button "Paste"

global gCopy
on myPaste
if gCopy is not "" then
put gCopy into field tTarget
end if
end myPaste
