I'm running a single windowed application (chromium) via
How can I prevent the application from moving its' window?
(As there is no maximize functionality without window manager, it's hard to get a moved window back in place.)

Without a window manager, there's no way for the user to move a window. The application would have to do it itself (or a program that the user invokes through the command line or some equally unlikely way).
With a window manager, providing ways to move windows or to prevent windows from moving is the window manager's responsibility.
I don't think Chromium tries to move its own windows, so you don't need to take any special steps to prevent it from being moved. Just start it at position +0+0 with the same size as the screen.
Start Chromium with the
--kiosk option to make it run full-screen. See also How to open Chromium in full screen kiosk mode in minimal windows manager environment (like openbox / jwm) and setting up a kiosk with chromium.
