If you mean you want lists that are not 'advertised' to show on the
admin and listinfo overview pages only if you and no one else goes to
the page, that would require modifications to the source code.

You could possibly implement your own CGI or PHP page that would run
Mailman's bin/list_lists command and display the results.

There should be no difference in accessibility between Mailman 2.1.16rc2
and later versions.

I don't know why a server upgrade would break Mailman. I suppose there
could be issues resulting from an upgrade, but without knowing more
detail about both the current and upgraded configurations, I have no
idea what they might be.

If you mean list member passwords, a list member can change her password
globally from her options page for any list of which she is a member.

If you mean list admin passwords, you can use Mailman's bin/change_pw
tool to change the admin password for all or selected lists.
