I can use Super-Alt-RightClick on the Gnome panel in Gnome Classic (Ubuntu 12.04) and this gives the edit menu (Add to Panel, Properties, etc...).

How can I change this? I would like to either change it to just RightClick, or remove the Super and make is Alt-RightClick.

It is not hard to change it to just Alt-RightClick. The need to press the Super button in addition is actually a bug. Open "CompizConfig Settings Manager" and then select the "Move Window" plugin from the "Window Management" section. Change the "Initiate Window Move" option to use a modifier key other than "Alt".
