Exclamation Can a Turbo's Charging be SET as needed ??

is there any way by which we can SET the CHarging of TURBO before
it is actually charged.
i.e if the Turbo is charged at 2500RPM, can it be made to charge at 0 RPM
or Atleast less than 2500 RPM??

eg: indigo n Fiesta have 1.4 Turbo Diesel Mills.
-indigo Turbo charges at 2500rpm
n
-Fiesta Turbo charges at 0 rpm

0 RPM means Engine OFF. Nothing including turbo will spin.

By charging the Turbo, I presume you mean the turbo is spinning and supplying air to the intakes at higher than normal (1atm)
Also by 0 RPM, I think you mean "Idle RPM".

A turbo is nothing but a small fan or "windmill". This 'fan' is placed in the exhaust, and it will spin because of the exhaust air force.
This spinning is used to push more air into the engine intake (using an impeller)

You will notice that at idle the exhaust air will not have enough 'force' to spin the fan.
So it is diverted onto the fan only when it has enough force. This is usually 2000 RPM and upwards.

Generally speaking, the earlier the turbo kicks in, the less boost it can provide. I've never heard of any vehicle that provides boost at idle....

generally superchargers do not have "turbo lag" and are effective from the word go. that is the difference between a supercharger and turbocharger in simple terms.

This is slightly off topic but its been annoying me for some time--
Lets say for example that the turbo of a skoda RS is set to 1.5 psi of boost and it is increased to 1.8 or even 1.9 psi what detremental effects will this have on the engine?

Its a scam. Stay away from such quick fix solutions. These companies are just out to make money from uninformed people.
