It is possible to do all sorts of things with Tor.

But running a bridge and a client together lowers your anonymity,
and possibly the anonymity of the bridge users.
(For example, your IP address will be given out to bridge users.)

And choosing exit nodes makes it easier to link your exit nodes
and your entry nodes, and discover your client.

Why do you want to do these things?
