   (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.pas\\'" . pascal-mode))
to your ~/.emacs file to inform Emacs that files with extension "pas" 
should use Pascal mode.

(add-hook 'pascal-mode-hook
   (lambda ()
     (set (make-local-variable 'compile-command)
       (concat "fpc " (file-name-nondirectory (buffer-file-name)))
to your ~/.emacs file to tell Emacs that when you use "compile" function 
in Pascal mode it should propose you command-line like "fpc foo.pas".

You may want to adjust this Elisp code in many ways -- look for 
documentation for all these functions and variables (like 
compile-command or auto-mode-alist) in Emacs using "C-h f" and "C-h v".
