I think either one or both of the above is possible by adding the
appropriate listeners and filters on the parent Display.

Thanks. I've posted some question on swt-dev, as Scott recommended. Haven't received answer yet.

However, I did some quick test-code with Display's listeners/filters. It seems that it is impossible to get events from other windows (somehow reasonable) without any hack. So in pure Java+SWT it seems to be possible to do a VNC server for Eclipse window. I'm not sure is it really worth effort.
