Question regarding lurkers
Can lurkers see private messages or secret messages inside threads like it was archived?

I don't believe so.  Private messages are strictly between the people sending them (and the GM, who can read them).  If you're referring to private lines in posts...I was under the impression that, until the thread was archived, private and secret lines were only visible to the players to whom they're addressed.

Lurkers cannot see private lines in my experience. I don't know about secret lines, though.

Private and secret messages are both only visible to the people they are specifically addressed to.

Question regarding lurkers
Can a lurker be assigned as a Co-GM?  If so, wouldn't that enable them to see private lines and such?

Not if you want them to keep their Lurker status.  Different game access levels can not be combined.
