what is .rf ?
most nearly all program have  resources
can you explain better

if you mean put another exe in a res file then call it from your program then yes its quite easy once you know how(put in res as
identifer exefile c:\somefile.exe
then must be extracted to disk first before calling then just call with shellexecute().

well im confused as to what you want but i suspect it either to execute another .exe file in delphi:
winexec(c:\windows\notepad.exe,sw_normal);

or you want to put files inside your exe (create a .rc then compile with brcc32.exe (in delphi bin dir) and get a .res file that contains exes,bmps,avi etc.. which when you build your project they are added inside it
example:
