`C-h a case RET' will list all the commands with "case" in their name.

`C-h i i case', then `,' will take you through the manual pages that are
indexed under "case".

Uh, use the mouse?

Or do you mean "How can I pull down menus in emacs by using the keyboard
instead of the mouse"?  I don't know about XEmacs, but the "Menu Bar"
section of the Emacs manual says:

|    On text-only terminals with no mouse, you can use the menu bar by
| typing `M-`' or <F10> (these run the command `tmm-menubar').  This
| command enters a mode in which you can select a menu item from the
| keyboard.  A provisional choice appears in the echo area.  You can use
| the left and right arrow keys to move through the menu to different
| choices.  When you have found the choice you want, type <RET> to select
| it.
|    Each menu item also has an assigned letter or digit which designates
| that item; it is usually the initial of some word in the item's name.
| This letter or digit is separated from the item name by `=>'.  You can
| type the item's letter or digit to select the item.
