What are the implications of giving an indicator access / allowing dll imports? I want to fully grasp what the programmer can do and not do with such access to my metatrader and PC at large.

An EA/indicator using DLL imports can get almost unlimited access to your PC. To do some nasty stuff to your PC it would still need to ask your permission for Administrator access via Windows though.

If the indicator's and DLL's source code is available and you know some coding, you can check beforehand whether there is some malicious code.
