It  is perhaps a little easier to size and position a text line inside
an "inline" anchored frame, than a text frame. You can create the text
with the text line tool (the "A" tool on the Graphics tool panel), and
drag or paste it inside an anchored frame that's set to "at insertion
point" and has been shrunk with the keystroke sequence Escape m p (tap
each key, lower case required).

You position this inline anchored frame with Alt+arrow key, and you
position the text line inside it also with Alt+arrow. To select the
text line (rather than the text characters within the anchored frame)
Ctrl+click on the text.

A similar approach could be to create a graphic and import or paste it
into a similarly-created inline anchored frame. If the point size of
the button changes in different contexts, you'd need a different
graphic for each.

Another solution is to use a key-cap font, so one character represents
the key, icon, or button. You may have to search around with Google to
find a font that meets your needs.
