for missing xhost, the correct FAQ is 
http://x.cygwin.com/docs/faq/cygwin-x-faq.html#q-where-is-xxyzy

If it's the Cygwin/X FAQ which has given you the wrong advice to adjust your 
path, can you please give me a reference so I can correct it

documentation and in chapter 4, it talks about starting CygwinX with either startwxin.bat, or
startxwin.sh or startx. I have searched my Cygwin files for this members and do not find them. I was
expecting to find one or more of them.

For the startup scripts you need to install the xinit package.
