How can I copy/paste multiple key-frames in After Effects from different layers?

Is there a shortcut key to copy and paste After Effects keyframes?

No, I don't want any kind of script to do so. I just want to move selected keyframes (they're multiple, not one, and they are in different layers) from a time to another time. But when I copy and paste them, AE pastes the whole layers!

Is there a way to copy them without copying the layers?

AE's copy & paste functions are contextual, so no, you cannot just marquee-select a bunch of keyframes across layers and hope they get pasted to the same property streams. That's simply not how it works. Indeed you will need scripts to facilitate the process or tackle the process on a layer-by-layer, property-by-property basis.
