What is the rule for term limits for a past president of board? We have a past president that believes it to be an unlimited term

There is no rule in RONR. In fact there is no such office in RONR. So the answers to that question must be found in your bylaws. If they're badly written, he may be right!

The immediate past president will remain the immediate past president until the current president leaves office.

Not necessarily. It is not uncommon (and probably advisable) for the bylaws to specify "for one year" or other limitation on the IPP. If the bylaws are silent, then there is no IPP at all.

"PAST president"?

Interesting. - I read your question at first as implying "president."

Nonetheless.

Answer = Zero.

There is no rule for term limits.

You won't find the term "past president" (or "past" anything) in RONR.

The voters themselves are responsible for "keeping" (cough!) any given person in any given office.

If your own rules define the position, then look to your own rules for administration of said position.

I'm not referring to an office (which may or may not exist in this particular organization) but to a historical and logical fact.
