You definitely cannot do what you propose, but there might be another way. Depends on how it is wired. The chances aren't great, but they aren't zero either. If you care to explore it, you'll need to shut off the breaker, pull that switch out of the box without disconnecting any wires, and tell us everything you see (all the cables, all the wires, all the connections).
