    Not exactly since those two kinds of bikes typically take different sizes that won't physically fit on the other rims, but there is a good variety of tire widths and tread patterns available in mountain bike sizes that you could use to alter the ride/performance/handling of a mountain bike.

    Be aware that there are other differences between those two kinds of bikes such as riding position, strength, weight, etc.

    usually hybrids have 700c and mt bikes have 26"
    that doesn;t switch
    you could just get 26" slicks though
    those are actually cheap

    If you mean replace your existing mtn tires, with smoother and less wide road tires - on your existing rims- YES. It would be a simple way to convert without having to potentially do some adjustments to brakes etc.
