Not sure what you mean by destroying format, but I can paste into
emacs -nw with no problems by using a middle-click (kubuntu 8.04,
still KDE 3.5, also in emacs -nw under an OS X shell).

Maybe the key is in the "where I want to paste it" part?  When I do
this, it inserts at cursor, not necessarily where I mouse-2'd.

That's because the terminal doesn't know where the mouse is.  I don't
understand how it possibly could, but the xt-mouse library apparently
does exactly that -- try it out, it's included with Emacs.

Also, `C-h v mouse-yank-at-point'.
