No; S pass is linked to your employer. PEP might be more suitable but has high income limit?

No. You're only allowed to work under the employer as stated in your S Pass. Not even to own a small business on the side.

If you are a PR, legally you can open your own business. However, your current employer may or may not allow it. So you could, in theory, find yourself unemployed if your current employer doesn't allow moonlighting. A lot don't.

the clause generally quoted to release part timing or moonighting employees is "conflict of interest .. "

Tough figuring that out, as Conflict of Interest can arise from an employee part timing, ending up not being productive in his full time job ..
