    Yes. In fact, the Dock itself is an example of such an application. m.

    search inside the page for:

    If this key is set to 1, Launch Services runs the application as an
    agent application. Agent applications do not appear in the Dock or in
    the Force Quit window. Although they typically run as background
    applications, they can come to the foreground to present a user
    interface if desired. A click on a window belonging to an agent
    application brings that application forward to handle events.

    The Dock and loginwindow are two applications that run as agent
    applications.

    Yes, there is a plist flag that you can specify (LSUIElement or
    LSBackgroundOnly or something like that) to suppress the dock icon.
