I doubt the initial request will ever work sufficiently with LilyPond.

Well, it's possible to eleminate the hyphen and the space it creates,
yes, but ligatures are not possible.
It's the same as in markup, regard
\markup \override #'(word-space . 0) \line { f i }

If one "joins" the texts, in markup one could do \markup \concat { f i
}, then for LyricText you would need to "join" the duration as well.
How to place ChordName then?

Evenwithout Hyphen
  \new ChordNames \chordmode { c4:7 c:7.13 }
  \new Devnull { c' c' }
  \new Lyrics \lyricmode { f i }

the manually joined result looks strange in both cases

  \new ChordNames \chordmode { c4:7 c:7.13 }
  \new Devnull { c' c' }
  \new Lyrics \lyricmode { fi2 }

The warning about "staff-affinities should only decrease" may be cured
easily, though

Admittedly even with a text-editing program placing two chords with
extensions over a very short syllable may lead to unsatisfying

So for now I'd like to second Johan pointing to a different program.
