I just ordered a new Clifford alarm: http://www.clifford.com/Products/Product.aspx?ProductID=721 and was wondering if it was possible to have a feature similar to the new BMWs, Infiniti's, etc. where as long as the key fob is in the car you can drive it.

I used to have a Python 881 [long story but no longer have it] and I know that once it was remote started you still had to insert the key and turn the ignition to drive. Would it be possible to do remote start but no key in the ignition? It seems simple enough, no?

Also I don't know too much about alarms, but I know they have a **** ton of capabilities. Besides a proximity sensor, what add-ons should I look into?

In short no. Vehicles with smartkey have something similar if not bluetooth keys. There is nothing like available like that for older cars yet if there ever will be. You could however simply disable your steering wheel lock and not connect the brake wire and the car would be driveable once you got it but this would also hold true for anyone else that happened across your vehicle.

Add-ons: Prox Sensor, tilt sensor, glass break, extra shock sensors, back battery, window modules, extra sirens, voice modules, anything you may want to motorize can be controlled by an alarm. Keep in mind however all this stuff is useless if it is installed poorly
