Wow, I can't believe I found a question that I can actually answer on this forum. The answer is absolutely. As long as the jack(s) have 3 terminals. If you want them both on one jack for a headset, it requires a 5 terminal jack. If you put them both on one jack, the terminal that contacts the stem of the plug must be the ground terminal of both the mike and the speaker, probably also chassis ground. That's IF they share a common ground. If not, one jack isn't possible that I know of. There are two terminals for the tip and two for the center (if applicable) one is in and one is out. The package should identifiy them. If you wire them backwards, the speaker/mike will shut off when the plug is inserted, but they will not work. Switch the wires. I did this on a TV years ago, but not with both mike and speaker. Also, I'm not sure how well a standard headset will work -- it may depend on the impedance of both the original mike and the headset. If memory serves me, some headsets may use condenser mikes that require DC power to work and CB mikes don't, but I'm not sure on this one. You will also still need to key the mike to talk. If I can help you any more with this, PM me. I rarely look through the forums. Good luck and God Bless.
