Is there a way to do launch parameters?
Like, if I launch the executable with "game.exe -fullscreen" and then later in the code detect if that parameter is used and then toggle fullscreen for example.

I don't think you can do it in Tier 1, basic. In C++ it shouldn't be a problem, Otherwise you could create a settings file and the first thing in your game you read the file and the parameters stored in it.

There's currently now way to access arguments in AGK. you could potentially wrap the app in a windows forms app or go Tier 2 but I it might be a bit much if you are not an experienced .Net / C++ developer.

I don't know any of C++, at least not yet and I'm not very experienced in .net either. How would I wrap it in a Windows form app? Or is it a very complicated thing?
