You can already do it with ctrl-button2 (middle button/wheel). See
buttonrelease() in source if you really want to map it to button1.

Actually shift+ins is X11 clipboard, and surf indeed fills primary
selection and not X11 clipboard. You can use middle mouse button
(wheel) to paste. Otherwise you need a tool like parcellite╣, or you
can edit surf's source to make use of X11 clipboard.
