Its all in the title, but again for clairity: Is there any way to make my Motorola Droid use Landscape mode on the Home Screen w/out sliding out the keyboard?

Yes, this is accomplished through the use of 'Home Replacement' or 'Launcher Replacement' apps.

Check out either 'ADW.Launcher' or 'LauncherPro'. Both are fantastic (and free) launcher apps that will not only make your launcher/home screens smoother, but also allow full customization, such as enabling screen rotation without sliding open the keyboard.
