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
# Make End work
# Make Delete work
# Make Insert work
# 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"
