probably = "πιθανώς"; possibly = "ενδεχομένως"?

Yes, but they are interchangeable is most cases. ^.^

I guess that those common cases you mention, in which they are interchangeable, are in informal speech, right?

But in a more formal, (let's say academic) environment, the difference in these terms is quite important, the difference between possibility and probability. Then, what Lng52 points out is correct?

It gave me πιθανόν as the correct answer
