Not that I'm aware of.

You could use a Windows emulator in Linux, or vice-versa, but I'm assuming that's not what you mean.

You can read your Windows files from Linux, but you may need to install software that will allow Linux to read NTFS first.  Or, you can set up a FAT32 data partition that can be used by both.

But, as far as I know, the only way to actually switch between the two is to reboot.

Q -  "...any possiblities..."
A - Yes and it is called VIRTUALISATION but I'm not sure whether you're interrested in something like that.
Basically through the virtualisation software ( virtual machines and emulation) you can run one operating system
from withing another.
