Mark a location with a Simple Marker Symbol

I have a known location stored as an IPoint.  The point is not a feature class displayed in the map document.

How can I:
Mark the point location with a Simple Marker Symbol stored in a style?
Possibly change the size of the symbol.
Possibly include label information with the symbol.
Not have to add a layer to the map to accomplish this.
How do I remove the symbol from the map.

I've been able to display the location as a graphic. But I'd like to see if it's possible to do the same thing with symbols stored in a style file. I don't like how the graphics hide existing labels.
Any suggestions would be helpful including pointing to the correct Arc Object to get started.
