When I copy/paste text from a website into Calc, the text wraps automatically if the pasted text is longer than the cell width. I then have to either disable that option myself after pasting, or paste as unformatted text. I am sure on my previous PC that had LO that the text wouldn't wrap automatically when pasted; is it possible to make it like this in LO 4.2?

I don't think so - the default is for the "Wrap text automatically" check box to be empty, but that does not prevent the text from being wrapped if copied from a formatted source. OP is looking for a way of the default paste to be equivalent to Paste special... > Unformatted text. I can't find the facility to set that as "default" anywhere.
