Can I associate a submitted FormFunction data with a user ( by $WolframID or whatever)?

It can be restricted to the case where "Permissions" to execute are given to the list of users or to "Authenticated" users. E.g.:

 FormFunction[{"first" -> "String"}, $WolframID &]
 Permissions -> {"Authenticated" -> "Execute"}

Here $WolframID will evaluate to the ID of the account where the CloudObject is.

    $\begingroup$ @Kuba -- For my part I think you've asked a good and useful question. We can't expect everyone to keep the entire contents of the documentation and their applications in their heads. $\endgroup$

You may be looking for something like:

      If[$RequesterWolframID === None,
         HTTPResponse[ExportForm["Please login ...", "JSON"], <|"StatusCode"->403|> ],
         processformfunctioninput]& ],
    FileNameJoin[{$CloudRootDirectory,"RequireAuthentication"}] ]
