I'm not that great with science (I didn't struggle in it consistently as in math, but I didn't do great either) so I can't really argue decisively for the validity (or lack thereof) of this air flow idea. The concept makes sense, since the pressure of the air would push things down, creating the illusion (if not the reality) of gravity.
The magnetism idea is interesting except that I don't think there's any magnetic energy in space that would allow for the use of magnetic means. I could be wrong about this.
One solution I have seen to the gravity problem was in a Christian sci-fi comic series I read called PowerMark. In that comic, these kids are recruited to create virtual-reality versions of Bible stories for kids who are getting bored of the Bible. They do this on a spaceship equipped with a 3D viewing deck and some other fancy techno stuff. Anyway, the kids wear special "gravity boots" to help keep them from floating around. So that's an idea.
(You can see sort of what they look like in the coloring book pages featured in the "goodies" section of http://www.powermarkcomics.com).
