Use lxde if you still want what you ask for and retain openbox usability, dunno why? i think that's your only option,
Try them both out. Depending on your usage xf86-video-ati should be good enough. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Catalyst willl get you set up with fglrx in no time. Just make sure to use the right aur pkg for your video card.I for one use fglrx cause my kids like their games.

Just use the default user option. And use the wiki method for switching multiple WM/DE's by pressing f1, or nix slim and just script a start(wm/de). Personally I would never use auto-login or default user options.

Short answer: no.There are some tools that will provide some degree of tabbed window functionality in openbox - but these are add ons. Openbox does not provide such an option. This may be the biggest difference between the two *boxes (and the only advantage of fluxbox IMHO).
