I've never done some of these things, but I think it's all possible with
GNOME (though I suspect KDE could do it too).

Number 1 is a matter of setting up Exceed on windows and XDMCP from
Number 2, if you mean that errors from your X session should be logged
to your linux box, then that should just happen given you'll be running
your X programs on the Linux box.
Number 3 is just a matter of turning on auto-hide on the gnome panel.
Right click on the panel and mess with the panel propgerties.
Number 4 can be done. I believe it's a matter of running Exceed in
"rootless" mode (or something like that -- I've never done it so I don't
know the terminolgoy). I'm not sure if that's compatable with loging in
with an XDMCP session, but it's certainly doable.
