No you can't. Thw wider the wide angle the more expanded the scene is and the longer the telephoto the more compressed the scene is. All those lenses will give you different images regardless of how close or far you are to the subject. They will also give you different depth of field.

This is correct. The images will not be the same and the DOF will not be the same. The composition of the cropped image and the other image can be similar, but the spatial relationships will be different.

Why don't you two just try it out yourselves. You might be surprised...

And for DoF we would have to discuss effects of the aperture size, wouldn't we?
