I don't understand what is a move theorically possible, but that can't be
e.p. capture can't be played so it is theorically impossible in my opinion.
Another position :
W:Ke1,Rh1,Ph3 / B:Ke8,Bd8
Black to play - Neither kings nor rook have moved
After 1...Ba5, you can say that castling is theorically possible, but
My opinion is that white has already lost castling rights.
After 2.Kf2 Bd8 3.Ke1 Ba5, is the position the same ?
