Apologies if I have complicated the process by referring to Align Tracks.
It still may be useful, but the clip movement facilities that David
enlightened us about is much more important for what you want to achieve.
But here is an explanation, as aligning tracks can be a valuable feature.
The following will use the Align to Cursor/Selection Start option as an
example and it is also the one you may need.
Let's assume you have a recording on track 1 that runs for several minutes.
You have some music on track 2 that starts at the beginning of the track and
you want it to start at the 30 second mark. With track 1 selected and track
2 not selected, move to the point where you want the music to start.
Deselect track 1 and arrow down to track 2 and select the track. From the
tracks Menu select Align Tracks and then Align to Cursor/Selection. The
quick way to do that is alt-t followed by a and followed by c. Track 2 will
move forward to the cursor position.

Orlando, as long as you start with the tracks reasonably well aligned, you
should not have too much trouble making the adjustment. As David said,
adjusting zoom level will determine how much each key press causes the clip
The process I described above will not let you move a clip if it is butted
up against an adjacent clip. That is different to Reaper, which will allow
an item to trample over an adjacent item.
