Yes depending on the hitch you purchase.

Not at the same time, but I love my B & W turnover ball gooseneck hitch with the Companion fifth wheel that latches into it. You can turn the ball over and have a smooth flat bed with no rails sticking up.  pull the ball out and drop the companion hitch in the socket and within two minutes you are ready to pull with it.

My truck has the rails for the 5th wheel attachment, altho I do not own a 5th wheel trailer any longer, but still have the rails bolted into the bed/frame....
I found on FleaBay an adapter hitch that is for a gooseneck ball, that latches into the rails for my 5th wheel. It's a very sturdy unit that has a positive lock in pins. I'll soon be buying one.
So if you have the rails for a typical 5th wheel for less than 150 bucks you can have the gooseneck ball hitch as well.

Re the B&W gooseneck hitch, if y'all compare a Draw-tite hitch to the B&W, you'll probably purchase the Draw-tite. 

The Draw-tite is a much stronger / heavier-duty hitch, at least for late model 1 ton Ford's.

Both have the same ratings, I have overloaded my B & W on more than a few occasions and never heard a wimper from it. 

It seems that B & W is about the only hitch company that Cequent Performance Products has not been able to buy out,  B & W did invent the turnover ball.  You know me, I have to root for the little guy.  I am sure they both are excellent hitches.
