Questions on XFCE and please.

Hello and thanks for reading....

I have installed Many distros and like having the Ubuntu format. I tried all the KDE's and Gnomes, Fluxbox, etc.
I liked that XFCE has some customizations, but not a system resources hog, as I only have an older Athlon CPU.

Can I use the compiz effects with XFCE? I have seen YouTube videos on this, but not sure on what I am doing.
I use the package manager to get everything...I know how to as I did it numerous times on Ubuntu and others.
I have not seen the nVidia logo come up after re-booting even though it says I am using restricted drivers and have all installed?

I do not even see a menu selection to select the level of desktop effects like I did in Ubuntu....where I could select use 3-D effects, etc, etc. Under Ubuntu, I think it let you choose no level of effects, normal, max, or custom (which got checked by using compiz)...if I remember correctly.

If cannot use Compiz, can I somehow get the older Beryl and use, or is there a better, but equally good program for XFCE?
And...what about using Emerald also?

Hope you understand all's all a learning process I know.
Thanks everyone!!!
