So, what is it you want? With some more requirements it might be easier
to understand what you are asking for.

If I am to guess you'd like to have GDM running, but only allowing
logins via XDMCP. Is that right?

Why isn't it enough to disconnect screen, keyboard, and mouse, while
leaving GDM running?
