Sometimes when I'm typing something and if I go back to a word (for example if I needed to change a letter or something) it will delete the other letters in the word...on a PC to fix this you press the "insert" (or something like that) key, but there is no insert key on my macbook.

Thanks

It should only delete the whole word if you have the whole word selected. Once you select the word by double-clicking on it, use your mouse pointer or the arrow keys to select the specific place you want to make the change. This will simultaneously de-select the word so you won't overwrite the whole thing when you type.

This was answered in your previous thread about using the "insert" feature in MS Word.
