You wanted to know if it was possible to prove, starting from Peano's axioms, that pi (or any other irrational number?) is not equal to a natural number.

You are grasping at straws, WM. Again, the Peano axioms are just the 5 essential properties of the natural numbers from which it seems all others can be derived.
