I need some kind of "autoincrement field" in my spreadsheet. I've added =ROW() formula to first column. But as I'm adding new rows - I have to apply this formula to new created rows as well. Is there any ways to do it automatically?

I strongly advise you to use hard coded Id's. If for some reason the sheet gets re-arranged, then the Id's will follow with that re-arrangement. An ARRAYFORMULA will stick to its plan and present the range as ever.
