I don't know if it works with zsh too.
Basically bash uses the readline library.
Docs are in man readline.
My .inputrc to get 'insert' and 'delete' keys working:

# This file is read by the 'readline' library
# (the library which bash uses for its command-
# line editing facility)

# Make Home work
"\e[7~": beginning-of-line
# Make End work
"\e[8~": end-of-line
# Make Delete work
"\e[3~": delete-char
# Make Insert work
"\e[2~": paste-from-clipboard

# Ignore case for the command-line-completion functionality.
# set completion-ignore-case On

set meta-flag On
set convert-meta Off
set output-meta On
set horizontal-scroll-mode On
Control-e: "cygstart .\C-M"
