Can I have any advice on how to put the key back on without the switches/plastic bits? Doesn't have to be functional. New keyboard is not an option because of the rarity of these machines.

It's more than likely that they use the same key mechanism.
Most of those two upper row keys look the same size, and would most likely also have the same mechanism.
Since you have the Insert keycap itself, just get any key in that group (e.g. Insert/Delete/Home/End/PgUp/PgDn or other Fn).
Check the back of your KB for its P/N or FRU.
Check in the G40 HMM if it is NMB or Chicony, then look for ANY language T4x KB from NMB or Chicony.
Or get an individual key e.g. here: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/324034724084
