This will depend on what version of Gnome you're trying to switch to,
I suspect. At least, a year or two ago, I was told "gconf will make
this easier". And gconf is now here. 

In the meantime, 

GNOME Administrators Guide:

gnome-config documentation:
(scroll down for the files about system defaults and overrides)

Please note, these worked a while ago. I have -no- idea whether 
they work now. I don't know whether gconf touches any of this
currently; nor whether it will in the future. If I am giving 
out-of-date information, I hope someone steps in to tell me.
