When main.py eventually finishes, you can delete or rename it from the REPL
delete: uos.remove("main.py")
rename: uos.rename("main.py", "newname.py")
The board does not need main.py to start. And it is a common practice to put in main.py just an import statement for your bulk code. Besides that, you should in most cases be able to stop a running script with Ctrl-C from the console.
