is there a way to place a tooltip on the actual form itself? that is, if the user hovers the mouse where there are no controls (button, labels, textbox, etc.) a tooltip would display.

Place a label on the form that has no caption and fills the whole form, and use its Tooltiptext.

Wouldn't that cover the whole form? (we won't be able to work with the other controls and also it will be  displayed)

Labels are "light" controls and they won't get in the way of the other controls. Try this little demo.
