Can they fill them with helium? or something else that is lighter than air. Or mabybe something that is heavier -who knows might as well do good for overall cog and weight distribution if tires are a bit heavier and chassis a bit lighter.

FIA would ban anything that is too flammable or toxic on safety grounds.
Teams decided to ban using helium for wheel guns to reduce costs and maybe for the green image as well. Weight advantage from using helium in tires would be negligible even for F1.
