I'm completely noob in Photoshop, I don't know how can I do this fast:

Press M, select region, press delete, choose with foreground color, click OK

It will be nice if I coud just need this steps:

Press M, select region, press delete

Can I make the delete action apply 'fill with background color' immediately?

cmd + Backspace does that on Mac. And Ctrl + Backspace on Windows.

You don't need the delete key, instead as Jon suggested press CTRL+Backspace for background color. For Forground color ALT+Backspace. – opsin Jan 19 '12 at 23:25
