A peripheral requires IPv6 to operate, however my backend is relying on IPv4 setup.

How can I connect my PC to have access to the peripheral and the backend?

the peripheral connecting to pc is direct or over gateways ... if it's connects over gateways... all devices switches routers etc. should enable the IPV 6 ....

ipv4 and ipv6 both can coexistence ...

It is a direct connection from the PC to the peripheral

Would it work if I connect the peripheral and backend to a switch?

(what kind of peripheral it is ? ) and how you want to connect to that peripheral...

if u are connecting direct ... then (if the machine is having the latest network card not earlier than 2 years can do auto negotiation of the physical connectivity that means no need of cross cable)

a.      Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) to Start Search bar and press "Enter".
b.      Right-click the network connection and click "Properties".
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
c.       Click to highlight "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" and click "Properties".
d.      Check "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".
e.      Click "OK".
f.        Click to highlight "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click "Properties".
g.      Check "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".
h.      Click "OK".
Reboot the computer.
I would suggest you to perform the troubleshooting steps and run the Fix it from the following article to enable IPV6 protocols.

if it's connecting through Internet Explorer... there using your switch

Starting the Web-Based Switch Configuration Utility
This section describes how to navigate the web-based switch configuration utility.
Browsers have the following restrictions:
• If you are using Internet Explorer 8, open a browser window and configure
the following settings:
Click Tools > Internet Options and then select the Security tab. Select
Local Intranet and click Sites. Click Advanced and then click Add. Add the
intranet address of the switch (http://<ip-address>) to the local intranet
zone. The IP address can also be specified as the subnet IP address, so that
all addresses in the subnet are added to the local intranet zone.
• If you are using Internet Explorer 6, you cannot directly use an IPv6 address
to access the switch. You can, however, use the Domain Name System
(DNS) server to create a domain name that contains the IPv6 address, and
then use that domain name in the address bar in place of the IPv6 address.
• If you have multiple IPv6 interfaces on your management station, use the
IPv6 global address instead of IPv6 link local address to access the switch
from your browser.
