It is possible to do that, using the API SetParent. Using this API, you tell that the parent of an external application is your application. I have never do that with Word, but with Crystal Report, it works.

Declare Function SetParent Lib "user32" Alias "SetParent" (ByVal hWndChild As Long, ByVal hWndNewParent As Long) As Long

Isn't word an MDI form already, in which case, I don't belive windows allows this.

I could be wrong though :)
