I'm looking for the FrontEnd`Foo[...]-like command that's triggered when pressing Ctrl + /.

Are there any discoverability features in Mathematica that would have helped in this case?

E.g., in Emacs I could have just pressed Ctrl + h k Ctrl + / ("Find function for key Ctrl + /").

I don't know of any discoverability features, but there are docs reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/guide/FrontEndTokens.html and in particular reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/guide/InsertTokens.html –  Michael E2 Apr 6 '13 at 12:23

With Michael's help (thanks) I figured out this snippet to do the job:

    FrontEndToken[FrontEnd`InputNotebook[], "Fraction"]
