    Does HTC Desire has this features?

    Maybe some security app can do that. I've read about some in the past that can do that, but haven't tried one myself.

    That's a nice way of keeping people out of any apps or folders you don't want them changing. Messages, Photos settings etc.

    If you have a security lock pattern on the phone i think it locks you out pretty fast and you can only open it by having the correct Google account details and I assume entering the correct pattern to begin with.

    The lock pattern gives you 5 attempts, then it locks you out. Wait for 30 seconds and you then get a prompt for your google account and password to regain use of the phone.
