Is it possible to have your picture on Facebook and hide from friends ie lead them to think you aren't on (no green dot)

Just turn off "chat". No one will know you are on unless you post

You can hide your pictures go to your pictures and select Edit, then Hide also don't set any as profile, You can "appear offline" when you are online bottom right Options icon then select turn off chat

If you mean them not knowing you are posting or playing games ( active ) on certain days then you have to turn chat off ( as I have ) then they won't be aware you are on the sight unless you want them to.
Not sure if this is what you meant by your question, if not then just ignore :-)
