There is no Modula2 mode. There is an Objective-Pascal mode, but no

No, it is much more limited. And of course, .NET/CIL can also be
statically compiled to machine code.

You can perfectly use a library compiled with gcc in a gpc-compiled
program. You just have to translate the headers. Just like in case of
e.g. Objective-Pascal, you have to translate the Objective-C headers
to Objective-Pascal before you can use the library/framework for which
these headers have been written.
