[Lazarus] Is it meaningful or possible to change the visibility or the properties and events in a form or datamodule, ie make the private or protected?

You can already do this by changing the way you are programming. Just 
write a class which only publish the needed methods and properties to 
the outside.
Don't let the Application create and control your forms, move this to 
your class. So, your class hides the forms, datampdules and other stuff.
