Possibility to install specific versions of Dependencies


I'm working on a debian package for a local project. This package will only be available for private use. I would like to ask if there is a possibility to force install a dependency for a package using apt-get or any package management tool?

For instance:
      Depends: dependency (= 2.0)

If you install this package using apt-get and there is an installed dependency with a later version for instance 3.0
We would like apt-get to downgrade the installed dependency.

Another is if dependency 3.0 is available in the repository, it will still install 2.0.
