I have a project that I am working on, and I have multiple config files for it. It is a WCF project, to be more specific. I would like to be able to choose which config file I would like to use for a compile (whether web.config or app.config). Is it possible to switch back and forth between different config files?

The config file takes effect only in runtime and it can include one or more services, each one with one or more bindings. You can use the following code if you would like the Binding and the EndpointAddress to be dynamic:
// using System.ServiceModel;
WSHttpBinding binding = new WSHttpBinding();
EndpointAddress endpoint = new EndpointAddress(new Uri("http://localhost:9000/MyService"));
MyServiceClient client = new MyServiceClient(binding, endpoint);

I was wanting to only use the config files and not have to hard code anything in. Is it possible to do this with config files or only hard coding end points in?

It is not required to hardcode the binding nor the endpoint. You may create a client without specifying endpoint and binding, and the client will use the definitions in app.config
