you can hit ctrl+shift+n to create new layer and hit ctrl + j to duplicate current layer.

If you have this suspicion why don’t you just tell us which version you use (also platform)?

If you want to get one image as a layer in another file, open both, select all (Select > All), copy it (Edit > Copy), close this image (File > Close), paste (Edit > Paste) with the other image active (as it should be if you opened both).

some shortcuts depends your installation language. go to edit -> keyboard shortcuts to learn shortcut keys.
