Is it possible to send some commands to Bitcoin Peers? for example decoderawtransaction command?

  • There are plenty of libraries that will decode a raw transaction as well, you don't have to go to a full node to do that.

The RPC interface of most nodes is password protected, so you can't send RPC commands to an arbitrary peer on the network. If you run your own node though, you can set it up with a password and the the RPC protocol to issue commands.
