It would be cool if there was an easy one-click/one-stroke solution to save a marqueed selection as a new image instead of having to >Make Selection>Copy>New File>Paste

Select -> Save Selection... -> Document: New

There's no need to copy and paste.

You could also record that as an action.

That will save a selection as a channel in a new document. The OP wants an automated way to make a new document from the currently selected pixels.

Record an Action that looks like the attached image and optionally assign a Fn key to it.
