Have a look http://www.gnome.org/learn/users-guide/2.0/ch09s05.html for gnome.
To disable the shortcut keys for an action, double-click on the action, then press Back Space . Being the gist of it.

For kde try running khotkeys.

You could write a script to do this. It would be relatively easy to do if you had knowledge of the gnome & kde configuration files. Unfortunately I dont :) Whats wrong with using the gui to change these settings?
