You can't (for now).

Maybe they'll print a card in a future data pack or expansion that permits this.

The only exception is Street Peddler, which, when installed, makes you put the top 3 cards of your stack facedown on it, and allows, in any paid ability window, to trash Street Peddler to install one of those facedown cards, at a rebate of 1 cred, trashing the other 2 cards facedown on Street Peddler.

The idea behind facedown runner cards is not "secret" cards that are revealed later; they are simply "dead" cards. They're installed, but have no text, types, or anything else. They can be trashed for any effects that trash runner cards without specifying a type.

also important to note that those facedown cards in Street Peddler are not installed

One question I have about this is: When Apex installs a card face-down, can it be any card? The basic rules says only hardware, programs and resources can be installed, but they also say installed runner cards are always face-up.

Yes, any card can be installed face-down with Apex's ability. A face-down card has no type, so it's irrelevant what type the card would be if it were face-up.
