you can change only the line weight and type of the lines that delimit the hatch.

When you create an hatch you define its perimeter: only the perimeter lines are editable in line weight and in type.
you're welcome.

Edit the fill patern and pick the lines, in the upper left corner are the different line types, change to the line type you want. Invissable lines will not show the border if you need to hide an object without the border showing.

To make new hatches there is a program called Hatchkit or you can edit an existing pat. file of an existing hatch.

If you want to edit your hatches, you have to know what symbols and numbers you will find inside stand for. For those who don't, there's an explanation inside the file revit.pat that is usually located in c:/Documents and settings/all users/application data/Autodesk/revit building x/training/metric and family templates/
There are 2 types of hatches: DRAFTING and MODEL, the first take the scale of the view, the last take the scale in the real world unit you specified in the .pat file.
The correct form for a single line hatch
-drafting
;%UNITS=MM
*name,description
;%TYPE=DRAFTING
angle of rotation of the origin axis took from the x-axis CCW, x coordinate of the origin, y coordinate of the origin, shifting from the origin of the next line, offset from the origin of the next line, first solid line [, if negative stands for the first  space, if 0 stands for a minimum lenght line such as a point, etc...] 
-model
;%UNITS=MM
*name,description
;%TYPE=MODEL
angle of rotation of the origin axis took from the x-axis CCW, x coordinate of the origin, y coordinate of the origin, shifting from the origin of the next line, offset from the origin of the next line, first solid line [, if negative stands for the first  space, if 0 stands for a minimum lenght line such as a point, etc...] 
it's a valid hatch also for Autocad user because the extra parameters %UNITS and %TYPE are preceeded by a ";" that makes them a comment for Autocad. You have to know that you can do a unique file with all your hatches of different types and load it every time you need it, without spending much time in selecting from a list of multiple .pat files.
hope this would be useful.

Revit does not support text in line types or text in hatch patterns, unless the text is drawn line by line into the hatch.

Also, u can define new hatch patterns by going to settings > fill patterns > new > custom > and import a .pat file.
