3. Using touch screen and mouse in parallel

To use the touch screen and a mouse in parallel you need to enter the mouse specs in the Xinput-section. This definitions should be the same as in the Pointer-section. The following example is for a PS/2-mouse:

Section "Xinput" 
   SubSection "Mouse" 
      Protocol "PS/2" 
      Port "/dev/mouse" #could also be /dev/psaux 
      DeviceName "Mouse" 
      AlwaysCore 
   EndSubSection
...
EndSection 
Several people pointed this out, especially the usage of the AlwaysCore option. Thanks to them all.
