I started doing most of my development on my Mac OS X notebook, and I got really used to the keyboard setup.

Anyway, specifically, I'd like alt (or super) + tab to switch between apps, not windows, and alt+` to rotate through application windows. Is that possible, or is it not really possible with the current Xorg + window manager setup Linux has?

GNOME 3 behaves as you ask. If you would like to customize metacity, go to System/Preferences/Keyboard shortcuts. However, for GNOME <= 2.32 there are two options: move between windows and move between windows of the same application.
