I'm quite sure you can do it with xmodmap (man xmodmap).

For a system-wide modification, you can modify you symbol
table. In your X11 symbol map  (in
/etc/X11/xkb/symbols/macintosh), you have entries of the
form : 

key <AE01> {[A,    B      ], [ C, D]};

The A, is the normal symbol, B , the symbol you get
with shift, C with alt, and D with shift+alt

You can use the Insert symbol anywhere... I think you also
have to set proper modifier keys. Just look at us_intl for
