man startx
(or xinit)

Run this from a startup script (via su), and edit $HOME/.xinitrc to
taste.

(not done this way myself; but I don't expect there should be any real
problems).

I can't answer this, I use Debian. I would imagine you get some Gnome
libraries but not any clients. Don't take my word for it.
