I want to know if there is a tool that I can use to inflate a mesh like a balloon or a cube or anything else. And the same question, just for deflate, so a cube goes in on itself (collapses).

Before:

before

After:

after

And using a negative value:

CharlesL's answer is the closest thing to what you ask but adding this as it can produce some interesting results. You could experiment with the Simple Deform modifier set to Stretch and adjust the factor.
