I have no problem to exchange text by copy/paste (resp. M-w and C-y) between
Carbon Emacs and other applications. 

For example  copying some mail address  in the address book  or Mail.app and
yanking it in Gnus  or copying urls in Emacs and pasting  it in Safari. I do
it often and without difficulty.

What do you mean exactly by «at least  I can't» ? I does nothing or you only
get some crap ? Sometimes i have little problem with accentuated french text
that is encoded in  Mac-Roman in my mac apps and need  some C-x RET c before
yanking in Emacs.

Again, no problem here for selecting some text with the mouse. 

I  would not  say some  stupid thing,  but maybe  you could  take a  look to
transient-mark-mode ?
