I am a senior inn high school who's highly interested in physics, but my parents won't allow me to study a hard science subject in uni. The other alternative that I've found which they might be willing to have me study is engineering physics.
Question 1: Is there anyway I can convince them to allow me to study hard science?
Question 2: Can I go for a PhD in physics if I study engineering physics in university?

you could try double major. my roommate is studying electric electronical engineering and physics. i think you can get a PhD in some fields of physics with an engineering ba. my parents were the same, i was very hard on them and now i am studying physics. but you don't necessarily need to do that. you can work on physics if you want to. paul dirac studied engineering

Won't double majoring result in a lowering of my GPA?

not if you study harder. if you want to get a phd in physics you should focus on your physics courses. your engineering gpa might be lower but you can keep your physics gpa high. you should study really hard
