Yes, see things like day-length, vision-night-effect, and so on. The
day/night model is quite sophisticated and includes not only day and
night, but also the changing seasons and the fact that (if your map covers
the globe or a significant fraction of it) it can be day in one place and
night in another.

As far as I know, that can't be done *directly*, which is a shame because
I've wanted it myself. However, the existing features can be used
creatively to implement something very similar.
One way to do it: have special terrain in the "goal" area. When the
right kind of unit enters that terrain, it wrecks into a unit type that is
worth victory points; nothing else is worth victory points to that side.

Yes, see the "add-terrain" action.
Note: this mailing list on redhat.com isn't the preferred venue for such
questions anymore. The SourceForge mailing lists are a better place to
discuss XConq now.
