Im sure the other one has window putty in there and is painted so you can see it, or one side of it is putty and painted over so it appears to be wood.
Anyways, what you are suggesting sounds ok. Are you planning on using 1/4 round or something?
Anyways, for a sealant just use silicone. Frame out your opening and before you set the glass in it put a bead of silicone where the glass will go. After that put in your wood stops and you are good to go. If you want you can even put a bead on each stop before you nail then down, though it makes it more of a pain if you need to change out the glass sometime in the future, like if it breaks.
