Assuming a Latin couple regularly participates in the life of a Byzantine parish, is it inappropriate to have children Baptized/Chrismated and receive Holy Communion without first formally changing changing which sui iuris Church one belongs to?

I wouldn't think it was possible for a Latin Rite family to baptize or chrismate their children in an Eastern Church without first switching officially to the Eastern Church

I know that it happens the other way around (Byzantine person baptized in a Latin parish), I was curious if it was possible the other way around.

That's not the case. I think when the pastor at my parish baptizes a child of Latin Catholic parents, he first obtains permission from the Latin Catholic bishop.

Yes, they may do this.

Furthermore, they may have the child baptized into the byzantine church, which will be noted on the record.

I assume m the child would still technically be Latin rite?

Regardless of church of baptism, the child is of the father's rite, unless the fatter is not Catholic, in which case he is of the mother's rite.

The exception is when the parents request assignment to a different church at time of baptism, which choice is then recored. Typically, this occurs when parents on one rite attend a church of another rite and wish the child to be of that rite.
