I was wondering if there is a way to use the Alias directive with just one file. Or there was a hack to do this, without having to go into another directory.

Yes you can - the config for the Alias directive says:

Syntax: Alias URL-path file-path|directory-path

So you can have a directive such as:

Alias /robots.txt /path/to/robots.txt

No need for mod_rewrite, where simple Alias will do. – Jacek Konieczny Mar 2 '10 at 19:37
