I see there's a way to copy the buffer, but is there a way to paste it
(so that it doesn't paste to the command line)?

Sorry, I don't know an answer to that one.

Also, is there a way to migrate command history (guessing this is
probably more related to shell, not screen)

In Bourne Again Shell, a "history migration" in bash from a "shell1"
to a "shell2" process can be implemented by performing these steps
(in strict chronological order):

 shell1$ history -a # append new lines to .bash_history now
 shell2$ history -n # read lines from .bash_history not already read

Kind regards,
