I think the command Edit->Autocomplete Glossary Entry is what you are 
looking for.  See the BBEdit manual for details, but essentially you 
just type the first few characters of the glossary item's name and then 
trigger the Autocomplete Glossary Entry command and it replaces the 
characters you typed with the value of the glossary item.  I'm not sure 
if Autocomplete Glossary Entry is assigned a hot-key by default, but 
that's easily remedied with BBEdit->Set Menu Keys.
