I am pretty new to gnus myself, so I hope I won't tell you wrong.

I would use the emacs killring. So, mark the text you want in your 
follow-up, press M-w to copy to killring, go to your message and paste
it with C-y. Or did I get your question wrong?

I never use this feature, but may I ask, where you've been looking so
far? I found this pretty quickly and a first test seems to do what you

,----[ (info "(gnus)Setting Marks") ]
| 3.7.4 Setting Marks
| -------------------
| All the marking commands understand the numeric prefix.
| `M c'
| `M-u'
|      Clear all readedness-marks from the current article
|      (`gnus-summary-clear-mark-forward').  In other words, mark the
|      article as unread.

Mass marking is done by a (positive or negative) Prefix, so
M-3 M-u 'unreads' the next three articles. (or use C-u 3 insted of M-3).

I agree, the manual is often more confusing than helpfull, but you get
used to it ;).
