Yes you can.  Set up the printer so that you can print to it from the AS/400. 
Then update the *M36 config to include a printer one a port that does not exist
and set it so that the printer is pointing to the AS/400 output queue.  There
will be no writer running in the M/36 for this printer as the output will go
directly to the AS/400 queue instead.
