I'm not a Maya user, but i'm pretty sure there's a hotkey list in there so you can learn useful ones and setup your own to speed up your modeling.

Using the Marking Menus you can add an edge loop quickly by selecting an edge then ctrl+right click in the window and select Edge Ring Utilities>To Edge Ring Split.

If you need more divisions, you can increase the amount of splits it makes by selecting the polySplitRing1 node in your Channel Box and change the Split Type from Relative to Multi and change the Division value.
