Coming from an iPhone, cut/copy/paste on Android is really disappointing. It only works in a few applications, and it some applications support it in different ways. It is just another illustration of the trade-offs between the two phones.
However, the HTC Sense UI specific copy paste implementation (which so far I have only noticed in the browser) is very similar to, but superior to the iPhone.
I hope that this is an area google intends to improve on in future versions. Certainly not a deal breaker, but frustrating.

I just have the sense app update once per hour, and if I ever need to cut and paste I can pop into that app. Otherwise I exclusively continue to use the gmail app, but have the benefit of having the results show up in search as well.
Something google should be doing in their own native app for sure.

Can you copy and paste a text message? If you can't..can you forward a text message (so i can then edit in it).
Or another question..if someone sends me an address in a text message, how can i move that dress to google maps efficiently?

I see why some people say android can be a bit "clunky". I think cause other phone OS's seem consistent across all apps and things. Android you almost have to put together for your own custom experience that you prefer.
I'm sure google is working on cleaning that up a bit but either way, i'd rather have options like that then just be forced to use whats provided to me.

Re: No Copy/Cut & Paste in Gmail App?
Hold down on a word for two seconds and the word should become highlighted with two blue cursors on either side of it. Move each cursor to where you want it and then click one of the icons above...one selects all and one copies to clipboard.
To paste hold down for two seconds in whatever app you are using and the "paste" option should come up.
