Could you send here the output of infocmp command?. If Insert or delete are not
working is due some mismatch between the values generated by st and the
terminfo entry. For delete the important value is dhc1, that should be \E[P;
in the instert case the important value is ich1, that should be \E[2~.

You can test what values st is generating using cat:

cat >/dev/tty
^[= #this sequence enables the keypad application mode
^[[1h #this sequence enables the cursor application mode
                #you can check now what values each key generate

(^[ of counse means the esc key)
