no comma. the quote is acting as the subject (a phrasal subject). You do not offset the subject from its verb by interjecting a comma. "Running down the hill is a lot of exercise", not "running down the hill, is a lot of exercise".
This is different from the use of an interjection, such as "running, especially up a hill, is a lot of exercise."

No, you don't need a comma but you DO need a capital "I" for "Insert".

No, DO NOT put a comma after the quote! I don't know why that suggestion got a thumbs up, and I don't know why people answer questions on here when they don't know what they're talking about. The quote is the subject of the verb "is". You don't separate the subject from the verb with a comma.

You can put a comma after here. That is after the close quote after 'here'. There's no absolute rule here. Also capitalize 'I'.

It needs no comma. The first letter of "Insert" should be capitalized.
