Getting rid of seamless mode: HVM is one approach, loopback VNC or Xvfb is another one.
On pausing VMs: Actually, even if you just suspend and resume the whole system, all VMs get unpaused. Xen actually has some restore capability, at least for PVs and maybe also for HVMs. This one is actually used in today's DVM implementation (as of 3.2), but it will AFAIK be handled differently in Qubes 4. The problem is it is hard to make it working properly with template-based VMs without additional restrictions and without counterintuitive impact on performance (like hibernated VMs affecting TemplateVM performance). See https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/832#issuecomment-289100070 . So, if you want hibernation, you can use a standalone VM. Such VM can handle everything on its own without involving Qubes (provided that the OS supports hibernation). I am not sure if hibernation will work well with standalone PV, but with standalone HVM, I see no reason why it should not work.
