[Maxima] only defined points plotting

First of all I have to say that I'm not an expert in mathematics and
neither in maxima.
I work in an high school (lab technician) here in Italy and I've (primarly
thanks to a teacher) introduced maxima as a tool for studing math.
There are some problems that we faced, the biggest was the in a some way
rough interface of maxima/xmaxima so I started the translation of
wxmaxima and this is now past since we are really happy with the easiest
interface of wxmaxima (many thanks again Andrej!) in italian.
There are though, others problems that we faced as we started to use it
in every day use. The more annoing is the way maxima do the plots.
Someone explained me that in a plot like this:
maxima plots the real part of the equation.
Is there any way to make maxima plot only the 'real' (i.e. where the
imaginary part is equal to zero) data (using points)?
Another interesting plot is this:
plot2d([sqrt(x-2) + sqrt(x-4)], [x,-5,5])
plot2d([sqrt(x-2) + sqrt(x-4)], [x,-5,5],[gnuplot_curve_styles,["with
