1- I would like to configure kaffeine for a "real full screen ie.
without any visible xfce panels. There are only one option in the
menu "configuration": choosing the startup mode!

AFAIK, kaffeine has a problem with the xfce taskbar;
so you wanna make it automatically hide.

Full screen is either toggled manually by 'f' or in
its (poor) configuration (which you could have discover
by yourself if you had read the docs or even tested).

2- How to prevent dpms action when on fullscreen mode?

open a terminal, and enter
xset -dpms s off

It should disable the screensaver/dpms until xorg restart...
There's also an item in xine config, which injects Ctrl keyboard events at regular intervals, but you do not want that as it's bad when editing text...

(kaffeine still /is/ a xine frontend, right?)

Duno, vlc has this setup.
