Would it be possible to add EPEL repositories usable for building

for RHEL.

Is there any legal problems why it is not possible?

Some packages might. That said is there a master list of the packages for
EPEL which could be reviewed and then imported ?

EPEL has the review process and legal obligations as Fedora and mostly
contains a subset of the packages already in Fedora (usually older
versions, though). A list of current packages is available in the
download repository or from Fedora's
package database

Also be aware that EPEL is a living repository and would need to be
synced on a regular basis.
