In FVWM (under /usr/ports/x11-wm/fvwm2-devel), you can set the
window raising & moving, focus changing, & pointer moving poiclies
to achieve what you want.  You can even set it per window (based on
its resource or title).

You should install fvwm-themes too (in
/usr/ports/x11-themes/fvwm-themes) if you don't want to directly
edit the configuration files.
