No, it's not possible to get rid of the menu bar and still have the 
second screen work.  For some reason Apple decided fullscreen = games 
and cut out some useful features.  The workaround was to have a fake 
fullscreen that puts a window over the entire screen, which allows for 
different output on separate displays, but does not take over the 
display device.  I remember spending days working on this and we 
settled on the best compromise that had the most utility in the 
greatest number of situations.

You can do what you want by attaching 3 displays to the machine and 
using two as output and one for the main.
