Right now I can execute a CREATE PROCEDURE or an ALTER PROCEDURE script with incorrect table and column references in the MS SQL Server Management Studio and using ADO.NET commands. The scripts run fine, but if I open the created stored procedures on MS SQL Server using Management Studio, then I'll see incorrect tables and columns being highlighted in red. I want to get those errors when creating or altering stored procedures. How do I do that?

No, you can't change the way deferred name resolution works. See this Connect item, this Connect item and also this section on Erland Sommarskog's "SET STRICT_CHECKS ON" proposal:
