Is there any way to use paste in edit mode, because in edit mode CtrlV is replaced by the vertices menu.
I can copy things fine but it is impossible to paste. Of course I could use ShiftD to duplicate but is there a way to copy?

You can invoke copy and paste using the Spacebar menu (it shows CtrlV as shortcut for paste, but as you said that doesn't work). Simply press Space and search for
paste and use the appropriate entries from the list.
As pointed out by GiantCowFilms, the copy / paste functions work at object level. So even if you use them in edit mode, the whole object gets duplicated and not your selection!
Because you can use ShiftD to duplicate, there seems to be no need for copy and paste.
Yes, with this add-on: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/3D_interaction/CutCopyPaste3D
With CTRL-insert you copy mesh data in edit mode, switch to another object and enter edit mode, and using SHIFT-insert pastes the mesh data.
