Re: Passive construction
I've moved this post to its own thread because it was not related to the question you attached it to.
1. Can't be made passive because there is no direct object that can become the subject of the passive sentence.
2 & 3. Commands are very awkward when changed to the passive. It would be very unnatural to say "Let yourself not be teased by him."

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
