It doesn't sound like you want a major mode.  What I'd suggest depends on
what you mean by shortcut:  text or a key-strokes?

If it's the first, look into abbrevs, for the second you can write your own
functions, which you can then bind to keys.  They could look like this.

(defun insert-foo ()
  (insert "foo"))
