I would like to always paste ascii text by default, not have to go through some dialog if the text I copied from somewhere else is in unicode or some other code. Is there a way to set that?

Click on the right arrow of Paste Icon and select unformatted text.

Note that unformatted text is not the same as ASCII text i.e., text from only the first 256 characters. I do not believe it is possible to paste in this type of filtered manner.

I wasn't thinking in a strict ASCII, but seems to me It's the closer option. I don't know if there is a font with only ASCII characters, if so could be a solution.

There is a .fon and .ttf made by some German that's strictly ASCII, just tested in LO on 7 Ultimate x64:
