I was able to associate both .ppt and .doc files to open automatically in Neooffice, but not .xls files. When in the "open with" section of the file information dialog window, Neooffice is never activated for .xls files, and therefore cannot be chosen. What´s the trick?

Not much of a trick, really. At the bottom of that list, there should be an entry reading "custom..." or somesuch (I'm looking at a German interface, where it says "eigene..."). Choose that, which should get you to a window that looks kinda like the standard OS X "open file"-dialog window. At the top of this window, there's a pop-up thingy, select "All applications" there. Now, you should be able to select any application in your "Applications" folder, including the ones that are greyed out. Select NeoOffice, check the "Always open with..." box, hit return, and you should be done!
