Is there a way I can under clock monitor's refresh rate?

Will under clocking or over clocking a monitor's refresh rate make subliminal messages less effective?

I don't know about subliminal messages, but I've been "underclocking" monitors for a long time using ToastyX CRU". My previous monitor only had a 60Hz mode. Nothing else. So I used CRU to add 50Hz (for viewing European PAL Formula 1 races, which are 50FPS). I also added a 48Hz mode (for viewing 24FPS movies).

Many monitors will accept lower refresh rates without issues. But there's also many that won't. Or a combination of both. Some monitors will accept much lower Hz than others. Mine would bottom out at 42Hz, for example. Others might be able to go even lower.
