If I want to send a token or NFT in Cardano, I need to include some ada with it. This is known as minimum-ada-value.

Is it possible to change this value for a specific NFT and make it so big that it is almost impossible to send the NFT?

I'm thinking of this solution as a way of implementing non-transferable tokens in Cardano.

The minAda requirement is given by the protocol parameters and is a core parameter that cannot be changed for individual UTxOs.
