Much easier than you probably think:
In[1] :=
f[x_?NumericQ] := Sin[7 x] + Cos[3 x];
SetAttributes[f, {ReadProtected, Locked}];
In[3] :=
Plot[f[x], {x, -Pi, Pi}]
Out[3] =
< Plots normally >
In[4] :=
??f
Prints: Global`f
Attributes[f] = {Locked,ReadProtected}
In[5] :=
f[x]
Out[5]
f[x]
The key elements here are the restriction to numeric values of the
parameter and the ReadProtected and Locked attributes.
