Restricted access?  Not that I know of, in fact it can't even be changed
during the game, I don't believe.  What you would typically do would be
to use Replace With Other to swap the piece out with an identical piece
with a different Restricted Access trait.  Seriously.

As for changing other traits, you usually do this:
1) Piece A triggers a Global Key Command with a property filter to
target piece B
2) Piece B listens for the GKC keystroke with a Dynamic Property, and
changes its own property

It is generally not possible for one piece to directly manipulate
another piece.  Pass control from one piece to another with Global Key
