Sorry to hear you’re that frustrated with it, but definitely use the software that works best for you. I don’t think it’s helpful to insult the people who contribute to Emacs and Aquamacs about their choices.
In case, it’s helpful, an easier way to copy a line is:
C-a C-k C-y
because C-k kills the line.
If you need to copy a line a lot, and the above is too much to do, it’s possible to define a function and a key binding that does that.
