Need more info. What interface? Any hardware control surface connected?

Having said that, you can use automatic punch-in/out. Set Pre-roll and Post-roll, highlight the timeline where you want the new audio and enter Record. Once the Pre-roll plays, record will engage for your new take and will punch out automatically.

Another method is to use a foot-switch and use Quick-Punch recording. Many interfaces have a foot-switch jack on them(most keyboard sustain pedals work here, but get one that is N.O.(Normally Open). If your interface has no jack, I recommend the old Presonus Faderport. These can be found for under $100 on the used market and actually have several nice features for any Pro Tools user(handy transport buttons, a motorized fader for automating volume of any track's automation, quick switching between EDIT and MIX windows....). Check it out(AFAIK, the NEW Faderport left out the window switching).

I have a 3rd Gen. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. It doesn't appear to have a Foot switch
I have an Alesis VI61 Midid Controller. Can I do quick punch with that?

I don't think you can. Either auto-punch or a Faderport seems your best bet
You might also watch some youtube videos on using the auto-punch feature, and while you're checking that out, look into Loop-Recording(especially with automatic playlists)

Is this for real?

Apple-shift-P to put PT into quick-punch mode

space to play

3 on the numerical keypad to punch in or out

No need for a foot switch

Its for real if the person playing is also the person engineering(but yes, if you are recording others, you can do it with simple keyboard commands)
