Switch to XFCE, your system will run a ton faster and all these kind of
features are available in the non-gnome desktops.

Don't know about an app for setting this, but if you install
gconf-editor (yes gconf, not dconf) and go to the apps settings
for metacity (yes, metacity, event though it isn't the window
manager any more), you'll find a focus setting you can change
to "mouse".

For this, install gnome-tweak-tool. This will create an "Advanced
Settings" application. When you start that, the Windows item will be
there.
