I've started a game using Vassal but so far it seems not possible to check the oponent discarded cards in the deck. I'm sure there is a way to do it. Any help will be very much apreciated.

Right now, there isn't a way to do it, because each side's cards have the Restricted Access trait that makes them unable to be manipulated by the other player. It's been that way for many versions and it's something I think should be changed, but I have too many module projects on my plate right now to work on this (not to mention a newborn at home that's making my free time disappear).

If someone wants to take up the challenge, by all means do so. It shouldn't be all that difficult--remove that trait from all cards, maybe enable the Draw Selected Cards option on each player's discard/removed pile and have it display the name of the card.

If someone makes a change on a VASSAL module, how do we make it "official", so everyone can download the changed module? And where do you state the new version number?

Post it on the module page at the VASSAL site. The version number is set by right-clicking the top node in the editor. Be forewarned that you will have to rebuild all the scenario saved game files from scratch--the existing ones will not inherit any changes you make in the module. There is a saved game updater tool, but in my experience it simply doesn't work, so I don't even try anymore.

I think the module also badly needs better art for the cards. Maybe that's something GMT would be willing to provide, but I never got around to asking.
