Can a hetero-sexual person be homo-romantic?

I don't know if this makes any sense... Or if it has been asked before. Maybe you have a good a answer to this? So, the question is if there are people who would only bed the other sex but only fall in love with the own (or the other way around). Or would only bi-romantic be possible in this case?

It's totally possible! You don't have to be homosexual and homoromantic or heterosexual and heteroromantic, etc. You can mix and match any -sexuals with any -romantics.

Yes, a Heterosexual can be Homoromantic.

Funnily enough, I think that's what a Bromance is, and metaphorical sisters.

Yes. And it seems like recognition of romantic attraction as something separate by the asexual community was required to give people a language for speaking about this kind of experience.

But of course! I've seen people over here experiencing that.

Yes, this is referred to as cross-orientations. Some interested data on this phenomenon from sexual respondents to the 2014 asexual community census:
 

"Many people have non-correspondent sexual and romantic orientation labels, and we say that these people have “cross-orientations” or “mismatched orientations”... In total, there were almost 800 non-ace respondents with cross-orientations, as compared to 10,869 ace respondents."
