How can I convincingly make my bridge pickup sound like a neck pickup, and be able to revert it to a bridge pickup sound with the flip of a switch/knob/button? The first thing that comes to mind is coil-tapping (not coil-splitting, coil-tapping), but I can't find much info about that, even in the Wiring Thread.

I have Les Paul Junior style guitar, and I want neck-pickup sound with no extra routing.

did you try putting your selector switch on a different setting?

ex. 1 instead of 3 or 5

Yes, hence the thread. I don't want to rout for a neck-pickup, but I want to have a neck pickup.

Something that might work for you is a Q-filter from Bill Lawrence. It is wired to your tone knob, so that rather than just cutting treble your tone knob takes you from normal humbucker at 10 to more neckish sounds at 8, to pseudo single-coil at 3-7 and finally what sounds sort of like a piezo at 0-2.
I have one on the bridge tone of my Les Paul clone and it is very useful.
If you aren't afraid of doing some reading, I PMed you a link to a lengthy discussion of the Q-filter.

That sounds like exactly what I'm looking for, and reasonably simple to install at that. It's perfect, thanks a ton Cedric. Where did you get yours?
