You can use cq:EditConfig. cq:EditConfig edits properties of the component and enables the component to appear in the Components browser or Sidekick even if we don't have dialog.

Hi,

cq:dialog will be used to show the dialog and cq:editConfig will be used to display the component on left rail and dragging to parsys. Create a component without cq:dialog if edit option is not required.

Option 2: If you just have cq:dialog without any node under it, click of edit wont open the dialog.

Hope this helps

You may create a node with name "cq:dialog" of type jcr:primaryType="nt:unstructured" and it will make your component drag able. Author can only drop this component to page, since there is no dialog item it will not open dialog box for authoring.
