Producing a single pdf output file is today trivial in TeX -- in fact, 
that's often the default.

Inserting a graphic via a mark-up command in the source (which would 
then be included, in its entirety, in sch a pdf output) is straightforward.

But with TeX, even copy-and-paste with a graphic is simple if you use 
the LyX interface to LaTeX.
