Yeah published departures are SID's(Standard Instrument Departures).You will need to have the SID charts ready with you and you need to understand your SID properly...

I don't know if it works in FS9 but in real life, when you file your flight plan you can state "No SID/STAR" in the comments section and then ATC will not assign a Standard Arrival or Departure". There is a risk in doing that because if the controllers are busy, they may either delay your IFR clearance or vector you all over creation before getting you on your planned route.

You can do this in Radar Contact v4.This is a realistic ATC program and this implements what you have said.You can ask for No Departure Procedures when filing your flight plan and starting radar contact...It's a good addon if you want a realistic ATC..Default ATC of MSFS 9 is very basic...
