This would need some type of wrapper around everything such as GNU
'screen' or as Andreas Schwab hints at emacs interactive shell mode.

Have you looked at screen's copy and paste mechanism?

There are also programs such as xclip and xsel that interface with X
and allow you to cut and paste text from the command line.  If you
know you want the output of a program into the cut buffer you can pipe
it to xclip.  Or pull text out of the buffer with xclip.
