AFAIK, it's not doable in OS X and if was there'd far more complaints that yours for the opposite action. With your requested performance, things would jump all over the screen and be very disconcerting. With a GUI, performance is remarkably different that Unix/X Windows.
Since you're new to Macs, see these:

OSX does not offer that functionality as I understand it. What you can do is set up hot corners in System Preferences (under Desktop and Screen Saver) which will enable you to show all windows (in a tiled view) and then you can move the mouse cursor to the one you want and click on it to make that window active.
To enable focus-follow-mouse under Mac OS X 10.5.6, open a terminal and run:
*defaults write org.x.x11 wm_ffm -bool true*
To tell X11 under Mac OS X 10.5.6 to not warn you when you quit X11 with X11 apps running, open a terminal and run:
*defaults write org.x.x11 noquitalert -bool true*
To confirm your above X11 settings, open a terminal and run:
*defaults read org.x.x11*
