1.
1 4 pass ? is it forcing ?

2.
1 2 pass 5
pass = is it forcing ?

Let's say you play pass/double inversion so doubles would be t/o in both cases regardless if pass is forcing or not but is it forcing ? Any general rules for those situations ?
I saw in old Meckwell cc that pass is forcing after 4 and higher overcall but it seems risky to me.

My general rule is that if one partner could have a zero-count, then pass cannot be forcing. That applies in both of these auctions.

Even:

1 - 5 - pass would be not forcing then ?

I play forcing pass ON below 2S - 16+ must have a partial.
And above 3S - 16+ must have 4+DT.
Neither assertion is guaranteed, but it puts a schedule
of responsibilities for the rest of the auctions.
Especially, did not use forcing pass why? Good suit? Good shape? Good honors?
