How would I go about configuring things so that I can run bitcoind without acting as a full node or relaying transactions? What are you trying to do? As David said, what are you trying to do? If you simply wanted to be able to receive bitcoins, we could give an answer.
If you wanted to be able to talk to the P2P network of Bitcoin, we could answer that. But you haven’t stated your full intent for avoiding a full node. Before going for a thin client approach, make sure you understand the differences from running a full node and also some security concerns. Bitcoind does not support running in anything but a “full” mode.
11, there is a way to run bitcoind in prune mode: How can I run bitcoind in pruning mode? Which is neither relevant for ram or bandwidth. More appropriate would have been a pointer about blocks-only mode. You could try some commands like connect for direct control of its peering.
