Once a member has the floor, for any reason, and there are no motions being considered,

can that member present a motion on any topic?

I would recommend that you read up on the topic "NEW BUSINESS" in Robert's Rules of Order.

When the time is right, "Yes," any topic may be brought up.

When the timing is off, "No," not any old topic is in-order, when the class of business you are in is not "new business".

E.g., if you are doing "reports", or handling postponed items, then the timing is off, and new topics must wait. -- Only relevant "new topics", relating to the given report, or given pending business, is in-order.
