Would it be possible to put two single coils side by side in the bridge position of a guitar so you could have both a single coil sound with one activated and a humbuckerish sound with both activated? Or would it not really work out that way?

I once used an SG on stage. I killed three people in the front row and I was only tuning up. It's THAT powerful.

You can fit some humbuckers with a coil split to do that, or indeed just move the middle pup of a strat closer to the bridge to function as you say.

Wouldn't moving the mid pick up of a strat still not enable one to combine them into a humbucking style configuration? I think that coil taps are a way better means of getting that sound.

Old italian guitars from the 60s did that quite a lot. They had two single coils placed side by side with toggle switches for each coil.

It would humbuck (remove the hum :-/), as is usual on the 2 and 4 positions on a strat, but it wouldn't sound powerful like a humbucker, no.

The standard way of doing this sort of thing is installing a humbucker and adding a push pull pot for a coil tap feature.
