Is it somehow possible to start Windows applications from xterm so that they "remain" in X-Server area?

No. There is currently no possibility to do this. The windows application 
uses GDI to draw to the screen. 

There is of course the possibility to catch the GDI calls at some point in
the windows layers and translate them to X11 but there is currently no 
project which has managed to create at least code in alpha stage.
