I've tried every suggestion in other Nepali text posts, but I either have the problem with the "quote" marks not showing correctly, or the text is backwards if I use World-Ready Composer paragraph style.

- Pasting or Placing from Word makes no difference.
- Turning off "Typographers Quotes" did not help.

 

I suspect there is a problem with more recent versions of InDesign, since it worked for people a couple years ago?

No, those suggestions did not help.  World-ready makes the characters read correctly, but the text is all backwards.  World-ready works great for Arabic, which reads right-to-left.   

Changing the language to Hindi did not help either.

Also, I've tried every font anyone has suggested, no difference.
