Can I greet another person "good morning" at 1pm

    You can, but you're likely to be corrected. :) Once it's past noon, it's "Good afternoon". It has nothing to do with when you have lunch.

    Native speakers often catch themselves in this error when time slips away from them, saying "Good morning... oh, it's 1 o'clock already! Good afternoon."
