I don't really understand what you mean by "commands that are not
If you're using Unity with the global menu, you won't be able to
assign/change the keyboard shortcuts for any of the menu items. However,
if you're not using the global menu, this is changeable as long as the
/desktop/gnome/interface/can_change_accels gconf key is set to true.
I think there's a bug for Unity regarding this, but I can't find it.

No option to change banshee keyboard shortcuts
Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: banshee
This is on Natty Beta 2.
There is no-where in banshee where one can change it's keyboard short-cuts, such as pressing 'f ' making it go full-screen.
This is incredibly annoying, here is a user-case:
Sam generally searches through lists by simply typing the first
letters of whatever he is searching for, as using ubuntu has shown him
how useful this functionality is, and the fact that most applications
in ubuntu, such as nautilus, support this kind of searching means that
Sam expects Banshee to behave in such a consistent manner.
Because Sam has a lot of artists, to search for the one labelled "Daft
Punk", he clicks on one of the artists and types "Daft". However,
pressing f makes banshee go full-screen, which is unexpected, as is
the fact that searching through the artists list behaves in an
inconsistent way. Sam knows that he will probably make this mistake
again, so he searches for an option to remove all keyboard short-cuts
without a prefix like "Super" or "Control" or "FX", but he is
incredibly annoyed at not finding any way to disable this
functionality, and therefore switches to another music player.
There is nothing more annoying than something that should be
configurable but isn't. (And editing GConf doesn't count.)
