I assume you've set up the global alt preference to be option because
you wouldn't get the menus otherwise. By default, nothing is bound to
alt-p in the emacs mode, but you can bind something to it in the
keyboard preferences and that binding will take precedence over the menu
binding. Note that alt-f is bound to forward-word by default so it
won't bring up the file menu.
Wing binds the arrow keys or ctrl-n / ctrl-p to history traversal in the
shell and debug probe, so you could also bind alt-p to previous-line.
