Yes, definately.

For the stems, you want to remove the stem engraver.  I'm sorry I can't
recall the exact command for that.

To remove the time signature, I suggest this:

\property Score.defaultBarType = empty
\property Staff.TimeSignature \override #'molecule-callback = #'()
d4 d d d
\bar "|"
e4 e e
\bar "|"
c4 c c c c c c c c c c
\bar "|"

You could also do this:
   \translator { \remove Time_signature_engraver }

I _think_ that the \translator line replaces the two \property lines,
and so you should keep the \cadenzaOn command, but you should experiment
a bit and find out.
