Is there a shortcut key/combo that will input the current date and time, and if so, how do I have the cell display it as mm/yy hh:mm ?

Try Ctrl+; space Ctrl+Shift+; format the cell to your liking.

For date only cTRL+; FOR TIME ONLY CTRL+SHIFT+;

The cell that houses the date/time, go to Format/Cells/Number tab/select custom and use mm/yy hh:mm
