I have heard than under some conditions a user of the Orlan EVA Suit can retract his/her arm inside the suit torso, then re-insert arm into suit sleeve and glove (under suit pressure). Can you confirm this? And where can I get more info on this, with specific instances?

Gerhard Thiele confirmed in an old ESA blog that the Orlan suit had enough room to lean to one side and pull your arm out of the glove and sleeve to scratch an itch. I couldn't find any further information on this though.
