Im no av expert but my guess is youre going to have to have one of the two type hus you dont want. There are single din DVD plays but they are usually junk.

It's easy. If your cd player has rca inputs, you just take the dvd player outputs and hook them up to the inputs of your head unit. Then get a y splitter and probably a video amp. On the yellow (video) wire coming out of your dvd player, put the video amp(needs power ground and remote), then the y splitter. Then out of it run your rcas to your flip downs. Done deal.

you'll need some sort of player to output a video signal to the screens, yes. as far as AUX in for your current HU, you'll need the aux-in adapter from alpine, its model is the KCA-121B:
