How hard would it be to make a second language of sorts for the Android?

 I just started reading up on developing apps for Android and it's
quite confusing as I don't know any Java. So I was thinking how hard
would it be to make a simple point & click Flash application that
modifies your Eclipse workspace files?

For example, in a game, you want your player to go left when you roll
the trackball left.
So in the app maker you click the character,
select on - trackball left
move left at a speed of __

Then it inserts template code into a few files in the workspace to
make that happen, all the variables such as button, speed, direction,
all defined by you.

1. How can I alway instantiate my ContentProvider

2. new sdk requires versionCode bump to install?

My old development process allowed me to make any change in the java
code and use eclipse's Run button to install the updated package to
the emulator.

Now I get
[2009-12-15 11:51:55 - SwipFull]Application already deployed. No need
to reinstall.
even though the code has changed.

I realize the manifest versionCode is used to determine if the app has
changed and it works fine if I bump up that number. This did not used
to be necessary and it slows down development when I have to enter
AndroidManifest and make a change with every deploy to the emulator.
Is there a way around this?
