I think you could use a normalization of  the
Bhattacharya-Matusita-Hellinger measure of distance, "Srho",
developed in Granger, Maasoumi and Racine (forthcoming) " A Dependence
Metric for Possibly Nonlinear
Time Series," Journal of Time Series Analysis. This distance measure, I
think, will answer both of your questions.
However, I have only written the codes in R that are still under testing
since I am not aware that there is
any ado file capable of doing numerical integration.
