Mapscript - Windows desktop apps

the easy way would be to use the C# mapscript and wrap it in a COM
interface. That's fairly trivial in .Net. But it would require .Net
runtime to be installed to run your app. Otherwise yes, you could
create a COM wrapper around mapserver, it's just a matter of designing
your objects (or copying mapscript's) and writing the implementation
(again, you can mostly copy mapscript).

I don't know if Delphi can call C code, if it can then your best
option would probably be that, writing Delphi wrappers that call
mapserver's C functions.
