 Is it possible to block the access of a group or smart object on a psd. file? In a nutshell, I'm sending this file for my client, but I do not want him to adjust anything at the group "background", how can I do that?

What is your obligation to your client. Why are you sending them PSD file at all. Why are you not sending them image copies Tiff, Jpeg, Png files?

Make a copy of your PSD and rasterise the Smart objects and merge the groups you don't want editing before sending that copy.

When he/she has made his edits you can drag those edited layers into your master (or your SOs back to his copy whichever is quicker for you)
