Default is boling really necessary

I'm playing around with some 1 gallon kits, and was wondering if rather than boiling, I could do a first wort hop when I add my specialty grains, heat to 170 for 15 min to pasteurize. Put the flavor/aroma hops in with 5 min left and just leave the hop bag in while it chills?
sort of like a no chill, but not really..
does that make any sense at all? LOL

You really want to boil. Without it you won't get a good hot break / cold break which could make for some very cloudy beer.

I dont know for sure but I imagine the bitterness from FWH still comes from the amount of time being boiled, right?

MUST boil to sanitize and get any bitterness from hops.

You need to remember that DMS gets boiled off as well.

A berliner weiss is one of the only styles I know of that doesn't need a boil.

How much DME would you say is boiled off in an hour boil?

None. Only water and volatile compounds are driven off during the boil.

Correct, that's why it's easy to use a pre boil gravity reading to determine the post boil gravity (provided you can accurately predict your boil off rate)

What is DMS then? Thought that was a typo.
