Hi,

Can I say: to make someone (him/her/me/you) hated/talked or any verb-ed (by someone)

It depends on the verb.

You can say 'It made Tom hated by everyone' because you can say 'Everyone hated Tom'.

You can't say 'It made Tom talked by everyone' because you can't say 'Everyone talked Tom'.

But you can say 'It made Tom talked about by everyone ' because you can say 'Everyone talked about Tom'.

Best wishes, Clive
I think you can put any verb but do not add 'ed'. For example,

Shut up! Don't make him shoot us!

Don't make me regret giving you freedom.

Don't make me look like an idiot!

Make him love you and then dump him as revenge

 Hi New2Grammar
I'm fully aware that "make + bare infinitive" is the most commonly used but it doesn't give the same intention as "make+ someone " 
 Clive, so from your example I'd take it that most of the verb-ed can be used in that kind of context but without the prepositions
Hi,

I didn't say that.

Would you like to write and post some sentences, and I can check them for you?

Best wishes, Clive
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
The construction to make [someone] [past participle] is not very productive in English.
The reason is that it is, in most contexts, just a roundabout way of use the verb in its active form.
We don't say that we made the workers equipped with safety goggles; we say that we equipped the workers with safety goggles.
Similarly, we don't say:
They made the refugees concealed. / The police made the suspect investigated. / The army made the enemy defeated.
Instead, we say:
They concealed the refugees. / The police investigated the suspect. / The army defeated the enemy.
Nevertheless, if arrangements were made for these things to be done, and the subjects of these sentences did not actually perform the acts expressed by the verb, we could say:
They had the refugees concealed. / The police had the suspect investigated. / The army had the enemy defeated.
(The last of these is not at all likely, of course, in the relevant reading.)
The only cases I can think of where the pattern in question might be used is with the past participles of "psych-verbs" (verbs of psychological state), but even then, there are really very few verbs that work with that pattern. The past participle has to be much more like an adjective than like a verb.

Sometimes Susan makes me depressed. / Sometimes she makes me worried. / Sometimes she makes me nauseated.
Slightly more choices are available if we use an inanimate subject:
Seeing how the elderly suffer makes her depressed.
Or if we prepose "it" and use an infinitive subject at the end:
It made her frightened to see how close the fire approached her house.
It made them relieved to see that the house was saved.
That said, to make someone hated or loved are only 'borderline' possible. The effect can be softened with a plausible context and perhaps some adverbs.

It made the cruel dictator even more hated when he imposed extravagant taxes on the populace.

The short answer is no, not usually, and certainly not in the general case.
