I disabled engine in create_msvc (selected only stable engines), but still getting error Error 7 fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'libtheora_static.lib' scummvm further investigation shows that libpng is also present as required dependency in the project files. it has to be optional, doesn't it?

You will need to pass the correct options to disable theoradec and libpng to create_project (i.e. pass "--disable-theora" and "--disable-png"). create_project has no dependancy tracking nor any way to detect what libraries you have installed.

Your bug report rather seems like a feature request anyway, thus I'll close it as invalid.
