there's an app called "dockless" that may offer something similar to what you are asking, it allows you to specify which apps are docked and which apps are not... but on a per-application basis.

it can be found on versiontracker here:

or from the developer's page here:

What you'll probably want is a program like DragThing (http://www.dragthing.com/english/about.html). Just set that up the way you want, and then turn on hiding for the Apple dock (cmd-opt-d), and you're set.
DigitalRamen sucks.
