What is the oldest move that can still be used? And if there is an older move that can not be used anymore, please do put it.

I think it is all the moves in Gen 1.
There are no moves that have ceased use. So as mentioned, every Gen 1 move would count.

Bulbapedia - list of moves

By index number, Pound is the first, and therefore oldest, move.

I think that makes sense, since Mew is the original Pokemon and Pound is its first starting move, making Pound the original move (I guess?).

As for no-longer used moves, I don't think there are any. All moves are still available to the Pokemon that can learn them, via levelling, breeding, TM etc. etc.

No I mean in the Pokemon universe, not first Pokemon designed. Mew contains the DNA of all Pokemon.
So my answer fits your description.
