Switching to a Mac - how to rebind hotkeys for basic functions like cut, copy, paste, beginning of line, end of line, etc?

I work in a heterogeneous environment. Windows will always be the main platform -- Mac's are only used for the very few tasks that absolutely cannot be accomplished on a Windows box. I connect to my Mac's via VNC remote desktop, thus with a standard PC keyboard, not a Mac keyboard.
How can I make the Mac behave as Windows-like as possible? The most frustrating things for me right now are:
- the usual keystrokes for cut/copy/paste (CTRL-X/C/V), beginning of line (Home), end of line (End), beginning of document (CTRL-Home), end of document (CTRL-End), etc.
- getting the green (+) button to really maximize windows
Any other tips on integrating this Mac into my daily workflow would be appreciated.
Don't bother telling me just to learn the Mac way of doing things -- I don't have time for it.
