RP: having an imperial son as a rep soldier?

Sure. We sort of see the opposite happen in the game:

Also on Ord Mantell you have a side quest where:

You could also write some lore around families being split up during the invasion - it's a recurring theme in civil wars. In the Clone Wars cartoon, there is an episode featuring a then-Captain Wilhuff Tarkin as a Republic ship captain during the Clone Wars. Of course, we know he turns out at the end.

No need to thinking about some big theories. Son just has a bit different opinion on whole thing and joins Imperial army because it rock and republic army sucks, everybody knows it )

That word that starts with a W doesn't have a K in it. That's not the word that he was talking about. I believe it is a word similar to Captain Hook's last name and inspired by a general from the Civil War whose first name is Joseph.

As for the OP's question, of course that could happen. The son could defect, be on a world captured by the Empire and enlist, he could have an Imperial mother (possibly of loose morals as mentioned above), or be recruited by the Imperial Army for whatever reason.

Differences in Politics happen. But as soon as he became a Republic Soldier, he ceased to be an Imperial. Imperial isn't a race, it's a culture.
And I'm fairly sure that level of betrayal doesn't sit well with the father. And makes family dinner on Life Day that much more awkward.
