I tried to combine the arrow keys with any of the `special' keys, but I haven't found it. If there's none, one should be able to bind some key to the command, provided that one knows the command (I don't).

I assume you are talking about TeXShop. If so, take a look at the Help->TeXShop Tips and Tricks document. There is a section there (3.2) that directs you to some information about setting up new commands. Two of those commands go up/down a page and recenter the cursor.

Good Luck,
