Is the launcher (side dock) found in Unity available as a stand-alone package that can be added to other desktops? (like xfce)
If so, what's the package name? and is it available for 10.04 or only 10.10?

Unity is available for 10.10, you just need to install the ubuntu-netbook package
Unity is also available for 10.04 through the PPA named canonical-dx-team/+archive/une
In both cases this will add a new "Netbook edition" option in the login screen. I don't think the dock is available as a stand-alone package.
More information and detailled installation instructions can be found on the wiki : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Unity
The 2D Unity project comes with
unity-2d-launcher which can serve as a stand-alone unity launcher
