I understand that your trying to use "Ving", "PP" or even "preposition" in the so-called the generalized "noun" object. It can only alter the meaning, but it doesn't explain your saying "並不是不可以".

The MAIN issue of this question is a PREPOSITION cannot follow with a clause. In your answer, the first sentence "並不是不可以, 只是意思不同". I tried to learn how you explain

However, what I see is:
despite + the fact + clause, where "the fact" and the "clause" are appositive.
It is not really
despite + clause.

That is to say:
The fundamental sentence structure you use is still:
despite + (generalized) noun
here (generalized) noun can be:
noun, Ving, or the examples you have given.

On the other hand, we seem not to be able to see the other side's point, so I think there is NO point to continue on with this discussion. This will be my last response.
