vmWare indeed has rudimentary 3d support. Google it.

You gotta run vmware_toolbox (or similar) inside the vm to get mouse pointer integration; no it does not run during gdm, only when logged in.

The autosize guest or full-screen does not work as seamlessly with that either.

Also try virtualbox that may yield better results.

hth,
