Node to Dashboard Communication

Hello Everyone, I am new to NodeRed. I want to set properties of the marked nodes V1 and V2 both of which are custom from an iframe embedded in the ui dashboard. Is something like this possible ? More distinctly,

  1. Is it possible to open the ui-dashboard page upon clicking some property inside the node v1 or v2?
  2. Is it possible to grab certain things (generally strings) from the embedded iframe and set it in another node property of the same node, i.e. V1 or V2?
  3. Is there a way to lock the UI-Dashboard? (as in no changes allowed after initial configuration which i need to read about more :slight_smile: )

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I am aware of how to establish communication between the iframe and the dashboard site and circumventing CORS via window.postMessage(), and also how to add iframes via the ui-template node / a link.
