Is there any way to make beam rectangular on the ends, instead of round? If not, same question for Stroke and 3D Stroke...

You can make an angled light beam by shining a light through a solid with a rectangular mask.
You can't alter the rounded corners of a stroke unless you make the stroke width overly wide and use a rectangular track matte to conceal the rounded corners. I don't know about 3D Stroke.
