OP, I gotta say that I'm bemused by this thread. Are you just trying to take the pulse of the community? Seeing who's up on Sunday morning? I'll assume the best here, but I think you chose a rather unfortunate title...

I will grant, though, that in using the Peek gesture (up and to the right), your thumb winds up blocking some of the notification area. Ideally, yes, there'd be a way to configure for this in the settings. I asked one of RIM's dev relations people about this at a BB Jam last summer and he seemed puzzled by the question, unfortunately.

And no, no side-bezel swipes to switch apps. I'd say the only reason the side bezels are even there is so that you can use them for top/bottom swipes in landscape orientation. The good news, a bottom swipe minimizes to the Active Frames page, and you can pick the running app you want to switch to from there. Only slightly more involved, and arguably better in the sense that if you have several apps running, it could take multiple side-swipes to reach the one you really want. AF navigation would get you there much quicker.
