I have lookup field called project stage, on item created I'd like to set to its default value,(project start). Then this field can only be changed by the Workflow as the project moves to the next next stage. How can I set the default value for this lookup field? Currently I am setting it in ItemAdding event. This field will not be changed by user directly.

Is there another way of doing it without code in InfoPath2010?

http://kenkumar.blogspot.com/2011/06/sharepoint-2010-set-default-value-for.html details a 'no code' mechanism for setting default values of lookups in Infopath.

Given your requirement I'd say set that on your New Item Form and remove the field from your edit form.
