Yes. You bind commands to keys (or vice versa?). Look in the FAQ - there
is a big section on key bindings there.
C-h k <KEY>
where <KEY> is a key you think you did not need or wish to rebind. Like an 'arrow' key.
Some examples from my ~/.emacs
(define-key inferior-ess-mode-map [f3] 'ess-execute-search)
(define-key inferior-ess-mode-map [f4] 'ess-execute-objects)
(define-key inferior-ess-mode-map [f6] 'ess-execute)
(define-key inferior-ess-mode-map [f8] 'comint-previous-matching-input-from-input)
(global-set-key (quote [home]) (quote beginning-of-buffer))
(global-set-key (quote [end]) (quote end-of-buffer))
(global-set-key [f29] 'scroll-down)
(global-set-key [f35] 'scroll-up)
(global-set-key [f9] 'kill-to-bol)
I have always had the history keys
