You dont have to sit on the couch with keyboard/mouse (why would you do that?) ! All you need is a gamepad/wireless mouse and use the latter one like remote. Couch is meant for gamepad games only - not keyboard ones.

Talking of remotes I came up with this Wii-type remote controller for PC:

Logitech MX Air Rechargeable Cordless Mouse

Ever want to use your computer mouse like a Wii controller? Instead of playing a boxing or tennis game like you would on Nintendo's console, the Logitech MX Air lets you sit back in a chair and command a computer with movements through the air. This sure beats hunching over to reach for a standard mouse or searching for a flat surface in the living room. On top of its capabilities for flight, the MX Air is also an adequate "grounded" mouse on your mouse pad. It boasts a laser sensor, sleek ambidextrous shape, and eight buttons.

The mouse was designed to resemble a living room device and not a computer peripheral. In the air, its contoured shape enables users to hold it like a remote control

Without a doubt, no other media center mouse is a better fit in the living room than Logitech's MX Air. It will complement other living room devices—not stick out like a sore thumb.

Its pretty neat looking. Perfect for living room! Would be fun to try it out on som sports games that I usually dislike.

Which brings up headsets, any wireless solutions for that on PC?
Wireless headsets? Of course there are. Allthough I prefer ones with wires. The sound quality is still noticeably better in them.
