4. Can you execute a DDL statements from Oracle Forms?

No. DDL (Data Definition Language) commands like CREATE, DROP and ALTER are not directly supported from Forms because your Oracle Forms are not suppose to manipulate the database structure.
A statement like CREATE TABLE X (A DATE); will result in error:
Encountered the symbol "CREATE" which is a reserved word.
However, you can use the FORMS_DDL built-in to execute DDL statements. Eg:

5. Can you execute dynamic SQL from Oracle Forms?
Yes, use the FORMS_DDL built-in or call the DBMS_SQL database package from Forms. Eg:

8. What is the "LOV of Validation" Property of an item? What is the use of it?
When LOV for Validation is set to True, Oracle Forms compares the current value of the text item to the values in the first column displayed in the LOV. Whenever the validation event occurs. If the value in the text item matches one of the values in the first column of the LOV, validation succeeds, the LOV is not displayed, and processing continues normally. If the value in the text item does not match one of the values in the first column of the LOV, Oracle Forms displays the LOV and uses the text item value as the search criteria to automatically reduce the list.

9. How do you use the same lov for 2 columns?
We can use the same lov for 2 columns by passing the return values in global values and using the global values in the code
