Does anyone know if you can login as an admin and in the backend then login as a customer?

Yes you can. Please note though that the admin account only works on the backend. Customer and admin sessions are always separate.

Well, what you are asking in your first post is if you can login as both an administrator (on the backend) and as a customer (on the frontend) and keep both sessions alive. And thats how it works as default in Magento. Or did you mean something entirely different?
