I just got a hold of a second gameboard and I do own all expansions except for expansion #5. Is am wondering now, if there is a way for me to play at least some of the published epic scenarios?

Probably. You'd need the Epic rules, which change the way certain cards work and how orders are issued, and you'd not have access to the Epic deck (which includes these changes on the actual printed cards), but probably.

You can, or could recently, buy just the epic deck from GMT, too. I think. abt $10. You just need to contact the office direct.

the Epic II rules in Expansion #5 relate to a card deck also in Expansion #5.

However, Epic I rules in Expansion #3 will work perfectly for you

Epic Scenarios 1-4 were designed with this set of rules, so maybe start there, but there is no reason why the otehr Epic Scenarios could not be played.

The excellent Command and Colors fansite also has large scale scenarios called Armageddon maps. These basically double the units and size and it is for 2-4 players. I have never tried these, but could be worth a look: https://www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/downloads/categor...
