Hi. Ok - you are still asking for things that are easy to do - and that is good, because them I know how to answer you. Both selections and paths can be moved (and you don ot even need a new layer for that). To move selections, just use the move tool, but hold "alt" pressed as you click and drag the mouse. If alt +click do not work (it may be the case if alt+click is used by the Desktop manager), you can stll pop up the move tool options 9 (double click on the move tool icon), and choose the second icon on the top - that is for moving selections instead of layers. As for paths: a path is created "invisible", and you can only see it as you edit it. When you click on another tool - like the move tool, it will vanish. But in the layers/channels/paths dialog, there is a path tab - thrid icon on top, which you can use to select path vvisibility. And with the move tool, as you can use the option to move a selection, the third icon ont he top will move a path. This shall be enough for you for now.
