Can the density of gas be changed for good, or is the change just temporary?
And what increases density in gases?

I don't what you have in mind by "change for good". In any case, gases can be compressed or decompressed to change density.

This may be a dumb question? But can a gas be harder than a solid? Like can the atoms in a gas, create bonds to make the gas incredibly strong. Thanks.

How would such a gas be different from a solid?

In a typical gas, molecules are separate and move around freely. In a solid there is a lot of linkage.
