    1. The preposition "for" has different meanings. Two of the meanings are extracted from the dictionary that are relating to your examples, as follows:

    (1) in order to help somebody/something 幫, 替

    (2) used to show purpose; in order to (have, do, get, or obtain something) 為了 (要, 做, 得到)

    closed for modification ===> (2)

    designed for Apple(公司) ===> (1)

    submitted for grading ===> (2)

    submitted for our file ===> (2)

    In the above examples, "for" leads a prepositional phrase functioning as adverbial to state the purpose of the "action".

    All the actions (transitive verbs) above are in their past participle (passive voice). That explains the form of "ed + for".

    Compare to their active voice format:

    ~ Yahoo will close its website for modification (Yahoo's website will be closed for modification)

    ~ Foxconn designs the iphone battery for Apple Inc. (The battery is designed for Apple)

    ~ Please submit your homework for grading.

    ~ You are to submit an extra photocopy of transport documents for our file.

    2. I reserve a visit for you to our company at 10 pm.

    "visit" as a noun collocates with (詞語搭配) the preposition "to" and "from" as follows:

    ~ visit (to somebody/something) (from somebody)

    "visit at a place" is not correct.
