    Would you be able to help in deciding if:

    Could you fill in this form, please?

    Is making a request or making a suggestion

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    This is more philosophy than english.

    Though I would say that this is a request, because, to qualify as a suggestion, the statement must be persuasive or have an inferance that doing the specific action would benefit you.

    This statement makes no inference that filling out the form will benefit you and therefore I would deem it a request.
