Not quite like it... but you can make it like an option like MyExe.exe /v or -v or -version

Which version of Pascal? If it generates command line (32-bit) programs, you can.
E.g. see the version info of C:\Windows\System32\Arp.exe.
If it generates DOS-only programs (16-bit), it'll be very difficult...
