Is it possible to program into WEAP different decision-making scenarios to see the influence on water resources in the future?

Possible and encouraged!

We call these explorations "scenarios": variations in the watershed characteristics that impact the results. You can implement different decisions into the WEAP model, and compare the corresponding scenario results. I recommend following the WEAP tutorial (available www.WEAP21.org/tutorial) to the "Scenarios" module to begin to see how the scenarios can be developed.
