How do I set up Ubuntu so that when I highlight text in a terminal it automatically goes to the clipboard and when I right click it pastes ?

Do you really want it to go to the clipboard? Right now, I suspect a middle-click will paste your current selection into the place you middle-click on.
JWZ's explanation is pretty much the most readable one I've ever run across. Highly recommended.
