I have an existing WSP project with some features in it.
I need to deploy a file to SharePoint 80 folder. Is this possible?

I tried just putting it in project's 80 but WSPBuilder, which I use for creating package, doesn't include it at all.

If it is possible, do I need to create a feature for that? How do I instruct it to put my file in 80?

Yes. One way to do this is using FeatureActivatedEvent to copy files from 12 hive to virtual directory and then delete it from 12 hive. Check this out:
