Disabling workspaces should be rather now: it's just a matter of forcing
just 1 workspace and enable support for static workspaces introduced in

As to disabling the overview mode, I think that it would not be enough.
If we want a single app mode for the shell, we'd also need to disable
alt-f2, and every menu items that can open apps or the control center in
the status icons. As well as extensions, I guess. I guess an approach
could be to re-use the gdm mode in gnome-shell. Anyway, if you want to
tackle this, it's best to chat with the gnome-shell people :-)
