comment Where can I find a non-Lovecraftian medieval religious horror game that will inspire dread in my players?
Might be worth taking a look at the old World of Darkness historical settings as they seem to hit pretty close to the mark you want. In particular Dark Ages Fae or Dark Ages Vampire. Neither are likely to be 100% what you want but they both seem to share a lot of elements of what you are looking for.

comment What skills would a DFRPG PC roll when playing a video game?
I think this is a good approach. If such themes are going to recur in your game often and be important, it might be worth adding some specific skills - given the relatively sensible length of the existing skill list in FATE/DFRPG it's relatively easy to slot more in without making it unwieldy.

comment Running a game with intentionally “over-powered” PCs
I disagree here - I think that skills and powers can be used in all three of the above scenarios but require more thought than doing so in a standard fight. But it does depend a lot on how you set things up and how you run things.

comment Running a game with intentionally “over-powered” PCs
If you could give the community a bit more idea of what you'd like from the modules (e.g. political intrigue, dungeon-bashing, sandbox kingdom building) I'm sure there's plenty of folks here who can point you in the direction of a tonne of material.

comment Helpless opponent & Coup de Grace
I can see where you're going here Michael but Coup de Grace is a specific mechanic in 3.5e and I think that Zaniel wanted help with the technical details of that rule. That said - your solution may offer what Zaniel wants if the CdG rules don't
