is the HTTP Bundle capable of displaying a web form (HTTPS) that is needed for the client to submit some information to the server?

The HTTP component doesn't do any "displaying" - it's neither a visual "control", nor a web browser. You can get results from a server and then using the UI tools of your chosen language/os/framework/whatever, you can display what you want based on those results.

You can also submit HTML forms programmatically via HTTP POST using the library, but you'll need to do the parsing of the HTML forms yourself unless you control the server code (or know for a fact it is static and won't changed) and know exactly what parameters is is expecting to receive in POST requests.
