Question Gimp help - selections

I find it very difficult to grab a selection I've made. And if by some miracle I do get it selected, I then find it very difficult to copy/paste. I also tried creating a duplicate layer to copy my selections that way, but then when I have that layer highlighted and I move it - it instead grabs the background and moves it. I'm sure this is really simple but if someone could give me a nudge in the right direction, I'd be really appreciative.

What kind of selection. For some (like the magnetic thing) you have to first click within the selection after the cursor changes when you're in there. Then you can just use copy and paste.
