I have a sharepoint web application like so:
I don't want to use port 80.
But i want users to type URL
http://intranet instead of http://intranet:8080
How can i achieve this?
That is not directly a SharePoint question. However, you can create a new IIS Website on port 80 with host header "intranet" and then activate a redirect to intranet:8080. So the user can enter intranet but will be redirected to 8080. All links within SharePoint remain on port 8080. Why do you dont want to use port 80?

You can achieve this using Alternate Access Mapping:
