I was told that pleople could shapechange into a Sylven to get the spell like abilities. Is there a way to prevend this?

Not without changing the Shapechange spell, no.

Not without changing the Shapechange spell, no.

Not even if I give it a define rank 0?

Sorry, beg your pardon, I was just believing some of the RAW-liers on this site. I'd not actually read the spell before...

You DON'T gain Spell-like abilities, according to the SRD, just Supernatural abilities, which these aren't.

It doesn't say anything, anywhere about whether you can adopt forms with divine rank, though you have to both be familiar [i.e. have encountered] the thing and have a CL equal to or greater than its HD, ruling out most divine things.

Another interesting note is that shapechanging into a demigod is mostly pointless anyway, as Salient Divine Abilities are their own class of ability, not supernatural abilities and thus can't be copied. Aside from Alter Form, which is Shapechange anyway...
