Say I have created a desktop Java Application that is in contact with a server and talk on a pre-assigned port.
Can I make my appln send a fake IP address to the server application anyhow?

When you send a fake IP Adress you will never receive an answer cause when the server wants to send something back he takes the IP address of the request.
So maybe this is not a good idea to solve your problem
