I don't know if this would help, but you might find that matched windows
will do what you want.  You can define just about everything about a
window based on a number of characteristics, including role, class,
group, type etc. 

Check out the sawfish-config tool.  I find it very useful as a learning
tool as well as the results of your changes are written to
.sawfish/custom so you can check out the settings.

As to putting one window on top of another, that is handled by the depth
attribute of the window.  Personally I use it to keep my "dock-apps"
above all others by giving them a pretty high depth setting (15-17 works
for me) so probably if you give the one window a higher depth setting
than the other it will appear above the other.

Check out:

Hope this helps.
