Thank you very much for your support, 久保田さん.
I already used emacs (wonderful sw!) for inputting japanese. I set it up with canna (although I later discovered emacs was ALREADY capable of writing jap...) some time ago, with almost no problem (setting the things this thread is about has been far harder!); when I want to use it I just have to:
Ctrl+\ japanese-canna <enter>
(where Ctrl+\ stands for M-x set-input-method)
And that's really nice, BUT I couldn't create any ps file, due to unsolved font stuff...
And what's more, I wanted to write jap in e-mail.
By the way, since I set up the jap input for kde, I'm no longer able to write jap in emacs!!! It fails miserably!
So I created a new 'jap' user on my system, setting its kde to be italian/japanese, while my main user is now set back to 'normal' plain italian, whereas I can input japanese within emacs... kinda awkward...
That's where I'm now writing from, in fact.
Moreover, I cannot write any jap in openoffice, although the box containing the kanji does appear; the result is fine WHILE I type it, but gets to a series of ugly squares as soon as I press <enter>...
Still much work to manage...

I'd read it carefully, I'm positive.
