One of the main restrictions is self dealing. That is what you seem to be talking about. I’m sure that there are unethical or illegal ways to do it, but why.
You can partner with yourself and the prorata share go to you and to your IRA. But deferring or eliminating taxes is more important. If you can learn to get a good deal on one property in an IRA you can learn to do it outside the IRA and make enough to live on.
