If active on the deck, you right-click the deck and select "Draw
Specific Cards" to get a list of cards in the deck. Selecting a card in
the list will place that card on the top of the deck. You can then drag
the top card to the player's hand.

You should be able to use a Restrict Access trait on the cards. For each
of the cards in player 1's stack, you would have a Restrict Access trait
that only allows the cards to be selected by player 1. This would
prevent player 2 from drawing the cards nor would player 2 be able to
turn over a card or have access to any menu items on the cards.

Orientation is fixed so that the view is the same for each player.
