I got it to work for me:
cat test | ssam ',x/start/ { i/\\texttt{/
a/}/
}'

Apparently there is no need to backslash-escape the braces since they
are arguments to add or insert. Also, the forward slashes at the end of
the insert and add commands which I put in seem to be optional,
presumably since the newline ends the commands.
