Onboard 1.2.0 comes with an initial GNOME Shell extension that hides the default keyboard and shows an icon in the panel, i.e. 1) and 4) are implemented.

In order to use it, first install the extension:
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extension-onboard

then enable "Onboard Indicator" in
$ gnome-shell-extension-prefs

and restart GNOME Shell.

To have the GNOME default keyboard show up in Actvities and password dialogs, enable it in System settings -> Universal Access.
