A Pokemon has a Hidden Ability when I catch it on dreamworld.
But does a Pokemon have a Hidden Ability when I put it into sleep, let it go to dreamworld, and wake it up?

No, Pokemon only get their Hidden Abilities when they are either caught in the Dream World or are bred in the daycare having a mother from the DW.

Also, Pokemon that appear in Dream Radar & Hidden Grottoes will have their Hidden Abilities if they have one.
But how do you then get a Zapdos with Lightningrod???, it is legendary!!!
Lightningrod Zapdos isn't legal yet. Without hacking, it is impossible to get; although that doesn't mean all the legendary's Hidden Abilities are not released yet; some are, e. g. Multiscale Lugia, which can be found on Dream Radar.
