It  is possible,  you can  run anything  in a  chroot environment. For  that
matter, you  can install  Red Hat inside  a Debian system  or the  other way

It's  just  a   matter  of  copying  "enough"  things   inside  your  chroot
environment,  which  includes part  of  /dev,  /etc,  your web  server.  and
probably the incoming part of your mail software.

It is going to be a lot of work and it's probably going to provide you with
very little benefit.
Also, if you wonder how you should be doing all this, it probably means that
yoy shouldn't be doing it (unless it's purely to learn)
Microsoft is to operating systems & security ....
