does verb "忘れる" have the function of an adjective - You usually call it an embedded clause, or a relative clause (in English grammar). The meaning is: the night that I cannot forget. But you are right, technically it serves as an adjective, is this case as an i-adjective.

is there any way to make Verbs have a Japanese adjective function? - Every clause in short form can work in that way, as any clause ends with a verb. Something more complicated: 家族と住んでいる家 - the house in which I live with my family, uses the clause 家族と住んでいる - I live with my family, as embedded clause.
