Squeak is a general-purpose programming environment, so sure, you  
could build something like that in Squeak.

Yes. The way you do it is to actually open your application's main  
window inside Squeak and save the image with your app running. Also,  
add a "quit" action to your app that quits Squeak. To distribute your  
app, bundle a VM executable for the target platform with the image  
file, so that double-clicking the executable opens your image, et  
voilà, dummy user is happy :)
