Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you're talking about opening new Seamonkey windows, then I don't think there's a way to close those which have no focus.
If however you're talking about new tabs in one Seamonkey window, then you can right click on an active tab and choose 'close other tabs' or something similar (my options are not in English).
I think the answer is "no" if you restrict yourself to Xfce's internal commands. However, you can use external software like wmctrl or xdotool to do what you want. Both are available at slackbuilds.org.
In Xfce, the default Window Manager key bindings makes Ctrl+Alt+d do the Minimize all Windows and Show Desktop function. (Think of d=desktop, or d=de-clutter). You can map it to a different key under Settings > Window Manager, on the Keyboard tab, if you like. Is that what you are looking for?
If you want to minimize ALL windows, yes there's a shortcut for that, as others pointed out. However if you want to minimize all except one particular window, then it's a different story.
The programs I mentioned will let you do that from the command line. If you want to bind those commands to keys, you can use the "Application Shortcuts" section of Xfce's Keyboard Settings.
On a side note: I myself prefer to create keyboard shortcuts for quite a few things and I use the software called xbindkeys for that purpose (although I almost always use XFCE, this way I have a desktop-independent solution).
