There is focus-windows-when-mapped option. Windows will appear, but
not get focus, if you set it to nil (or use the GUI to change). But
you will probably have to select click focus mode, as it doesn't seem
to work 100% realiably (other modes seem to set focus in some cases).

If that doesn't fit, you will have to dig deeper.
