Apple's universal interfaces have Pascal bindings. They allow you to 
program using the Carbon interface. See 
http://www.freepascal.org/xcode.html for more information.

That is harder. Two possibilities are WxWindows (also works under Mac 
OS X, but I don't know about Pascal bindings) and gtk (only works under 
X11 under Mac OS X), but I doubt you will be able to write one 
interface which looks native for all platforms, regardless of which 
toolkit you use.
