a BIT confusing

i understand it but newbies may get lost and stuck in the adhesive.

anyway, one thing i have heard is that satoshi or the creators can change the program. for example i've heard they can change things like the amount created past 21 million or change the time frame or shutdown the whole system. is any of that true? i understand it is open source and people would know if something changed but that is after the fact. what can be changed if anything? what stops them from changing something and taking all the btc?
