On the other hand, as for Gahreesen swimming, it is technically possible to do it, even if it isn't done using unmodified game files (found this with Google):

I think there's a strong possibility that that picture was merely made by combining an image of Gahreesen with one of Ahnonay. There are, of course, other ways to do it, but that would be the easiest. It is my understanding that adding swimming to an age is decidedly nontrivial, and I believe actually be easier (if we assume for the sake of argument that the picture itself unmodified) to simply use flymode to put the avatar in position and then activate the swimming animation (I remember some of the Until Uru shard admins used to do stuff like that, those animations exist even in earlier versions of the game).
Although I suspect that particular image was made to entertain, not to delude, and was made using photoshop or the like, not special game modifications.
These image looks like (for me) the "climbing" animation, not the "smimming" one...
I don't think these image was "photoshoped" ; just using the "/float" command or something like this and another command activating the "climbing" animation...
On the other hand, I think it is technically possible to swim in Gahreesen's water... But not with the game files from Cyan.
You probably have to be abble to "create" new files and modifying some other for that's be really possible...
