Some, if not all of this can be done by setting up profiles (Settings > Manage 
Profiles).  I have one profile that gives me a root profile (/bin su -) with a 
different background, to make it obvious.  I don't have a profile for a remote 
connection, but I have a bookmark set up, that, together with keychain, 
automatically logs me onto a remote  box.

This I can't help with.  If a visible  bell will do, try setting notifications 
to flash the taskbar tab.
