There is a minor holiday called "pesach sheni" when is a month after passover. I saw an article that some people who were in hospital or similar on passover did make a seder and such on pesach sheni. Otherwise it was a holiday for earlier times (a second chance to bring the passover sacrifice for those who were unable to).

Since Passover is based on the story of Moses, I seriously doubt he or the book of Exodus provide guidelines for the observance.

Who has never heard of such a thing but that doesn't mean it couldn't be a thing...

The book of Numbers (Bamidbar) Chapter 9 has an account of some men who were unclean because of a dead person and coul not celebrate Pesach at the appointed time. They went to Moses who asked G-d and He said, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘If any one of you or of your generations becomes unclean because of a dead 6 person, or is on a distant journey, he may, however, observe the Passover to the L-RD. ‘In the second month on the fourteenth day at twilight, they shall observe it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

I didn't read far enough in Numbers Chapter 9.

Verse 13 ‘But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and yet neglects to observe the Passover, that person shall then be cut off from his people, for he did not present the offering of the LORD at its appointed time. That man will bear his sin.

Celebration of Pesach was not optional for the children of Israel.

Exodus 12:11 gives instructions for the first Passover (in Egypt):
And thus shall ye eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and
your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste--it is the LORD'S passover.


And Leviticus (23:5-8) provides guidelines for subsequent observances:
5 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at dusk, is the L-RD'S passover.
6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto
the L-RD; seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread.
7 In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work.
8 And ye shall bring an offering made by fire unto the L-RD seven days; in the
seventh day is a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, but it looks like this has already been answered. (Short version: In modern times, one may not celebrate a month later.)
