On Ubuntu based systems, it is possible to add repositories through Synaptic Package Manager interface without having to edit the sources.list file.

Is this also possible on Fedora based systems?

Can you explain why you need this?

Many repos provide an RPM file which just drops the relevant repo meta-data directly into /etc/yum.repos.d/, so you just manually install that RPM and thereafter use yum normally.
