Is there a bitmonero.conf file where I can hard code a --daemon-address so I don't have to manually type it in every time I run the monero-wallet-cli?
There is no default wallet config file IIRC, so just put all your wallet specific settings in a file like
~/.bitmonero/wallet.conf and then start your wallet like:
monero-wallet-cli --config-file ~/.bitmonero/wallet.conf
You can put any of the startup paremeters as listed from
monero-wallet-cli --help. Just omit the leading
-- and place one option per line. So for your
daemon-address it would look like:
