Create a link to join a group in a topic

Is there a way to create a way for a user to request to be added to a group from a topic? Also is there a way to prevent users from seeing the groups options?

My goal is to force a user to at least click on the intro topic for a group prior to requesting to join said group, not just be able to request adds to all our groups from one location.

*found how to hide the groups option.

I think Iā€™d simply hide the request button from the groups page, so the user has to at least click on the group, with something resembling this:

body.groups-page {
   display: none;

(to be added in your.domain/admin/customize/themes/1/common/scss/edit)
