If it's tight, you generally don't want to insert anything, as that will snug things up.

What punching is is a process where a small portion of your skate is basically stretched out. You have a little ring on the outside of the skate and there's a piece on the inside that punches out the area inside that ring to give you a little more room there. Most any LHS should be able to do it for you, it would probably run you about $10-15.

It sounds to me like your forefoot is a shaped a little different then the boot. That's the kind of thing baking normally takes care of, so if you didn't do that, do it now. If that doesn't take care of it and tying differently doesn't take care of it, punching almost certainly will.
