You can also change it if you want:

DecimalSeparator := '.';

DecimalSeparator := ',';

Yes. If you wish to change separator within your Delphi application, use DecimalSeparator global variable. But if you wish to redefine SYSTEM decimal separator, then change it in WIN.INI file, section [intl], ident iDECIMAL. Just set it equal to whatever you want.
