No, using layers is the principal of making images in Photoshop.  You can flatten your image periodically using the Layer/Flatten Image option.  You then lose the flexibility of being to easily shift/resize/add effects to individual elements of your image.

You should be able to record a macro for it in photoshop.

There is no way to get rid of layers completely.  However if your goal is to try and make PhotoShop act more like other graphic editors where adding text or pasting will go directly
into the graphic, instead of a new layer....?
Then switch the mode to indexed color this will prevent you
from adding new layers either intentionally or on purpose.
Saving the file in index mode should NOT make it incompatible with other programs.

Your answer is right, though it gets you to work in 256 colors maximum i think. i am not sure, when working in a bitmap if this is the case as well.
