I'm glad you got your del key to work as desired.  These are not answers 
to your questions, but are related, and are usefull features to know 
about.

First, Emacs with the tramp or ange-ftp packages, one can edit remote 
files as if they were local.  So you could use your favorite version of
emacs all the time.

Second, Emacs and XEmacs are separate entities.  You might consider
fixing all your problems with just one of them first.  Then you can do
something like:

(if (featurep 'xemacs)
    (progn
      ;; do Xemacs stuff
      )
  ;; do Emacs stuff
  )

in your .emacs file, because the same settings may not be possible 
globally.  You may even need to if/then/else the different versions of 
emacs within your .emacs file.

Just wanted to raise awareness of possibilities ...
