I have a Mt. Gox account with a few BTC in it. Is it possible for a user to send me Bitcoins that will appear in my Mt. Gox account without them first creating a Mt. Gox account?

Sure.  Go to Mt Gox. Log In.  Click Add Funds.  Look down the page to "Add BitCoins"   Key in the number of Bitcoins that your friend is going to send you.   You'll be given a number, like this one: 1BZbpx7wHAUcBgzAtH4KeogTmtgUrq5Nkk

Give that number to your friend, and tell him to use it within 24 hours.

Note, your number will be different.

Great. Thanks jerfelix.

And it is possible to have them send your BTCs without requesting a specific amount?

Sure, get a wallet.  You can go to bitcoin.org and download the client.  Or you can use an online wallet (like instawallet or bitcoinme).

Once you have a wallet, you'll be able to generate those numbers yourself (your Wallet ID).  Then just let your friend know what your wallet ID is, and he can send you Bitcoin whenever he wants to.

Then when you want to send it to Mt Gox, follow the instructions I mentioned earlier. 

You can also transfer from Mt Gox to your wallet.

The amount part is not used anyway; you can send any number of bitcoins to the address that mtgox shows you.
