The escape sequences are esc[[esc  and esc]]esc. But you I prefer to
add a keystroke for that. I use "Ctrl <" to produce the opening and
closing double bracket and to position the cursor between the brackets.

To do that, open the Mathematica file KeyEventTranslations.tr in an
editor and add this code:

  Item[KeyEvent["<",Modifiers->{Control}],
      FrontEndExecute[{FrontEnd`NotebookWrite[FrontEnd`SelectedNotebook[],
        "\[LeftDoubleBracket]\[RightDoubleBracket]",After],
              FrontEndToken["MovePrevious"]}]]

WARNING: Be careful when changing this file. Make a copy of it before
altering. If you made an error (e.g. missing a comma) Mathematica will
not start.
