One can use the binaries from w32tex.org, but they won't be able to
use the miktex tools (on-the-fly installation etc), and you need
also a texmf.cnf, ddl for kpsewhich etc. 

Imho it would be easier to install a texlive in parallel and
exchange the binary there. Switching between miktex and texlive is
easy: you only need to change the path variable.
