I do not think it can be solved the exact way you propose. But you can "trap" the mouse pointer into the virtualbox window. You need to use a key to release the mouse before you can use it again on the desktop. See su.SE: How do I trap the mouse pointer within a VirtualBox Guest OS? Another solution could be to replace the modifier key Alt by Super, which ...

Possible graphical solution: A graphical sessions management tool may exist in KDE.

There have been many discussions about dead keys, how they should be used to be able to generate accented characters, etc. The behaviour of characters such as ~ and ^ may depend on your system's locale settings and the input method of the specific program.
