No, you can't force a dream, although you CAN increase its likelihood by spending more mental activity on it and repetitions, especially before you sleep. E.G. try thinking about "eggs" and think of it in however many ways you can before you sleep and most likely you'll have dreams about eggs in one form or another...
As far as having a lucid dream, it's a gradual process. I'm assuming you want to be aware of your dreams and to have more control over them? or maybe just have memories of them?
First step you should try to take is just simply tell yourself that "I will remember my dream tonight" before you sleep.
We always remember our dream the moment we wake from them, as brain activity in REM are very similar to wakefulness, and I'm sure you had those moments where you KNOW you used to remember but now can't. So second step is, have a dream diary. Just have paper and a writing utensil next to you, and record your dreams immediately whenever you wake up, either in the morning or whenever you happen to wake. It's not long, you don't have to write the whole story, maybe even just simple keywords or something to jog your memory. Or you can just recite the dream when you wake and make sure to commit it to short-term memory to allow consolidation.
Lucid dreaming, which I think you mean having control in your dreams, comes after you've familiarize yourself with dreaming and then just do the mental goal thing of "I will produce an action in my dreams tonight" or something.
