First suggestion is always: RTFM, or, in Emacs: C-h i C-s auctex RET RET

Second much bigger effort: open a TeX file and type C-h b. You'll see 
key translations/key bindings. You'll see lists of 'Minor Mode 
Bindings' for bib-cite-minor-mode, reftex-mode, 'Major Mode Bindings'. 
Depending on in which map the key is defined you'd have to set in your 
.emacs many many:

(define-key TeX-mode-map "\C-c\C-d" 'TeX-save-document)

(define-key reftex-mode-map [(shift button2)]  

bib-cite-minor-mode, outline-minor-mode, flyspell-mode use a different 
way to set their key bindings. I think the way to change these would be 
to extract the blocks where input is bound to functions from the 
original .el file into your .emacs and change what you need to be 
changed. But there might be a real Emacs Lisp expert to correct me ...
