Even if you could, getting two side by side rifle barrels to shoot to the same place, more or less, is not easy and expensive. I am not sure at all how to convert a breachloading side by side shotgun into a ML anything.

you'd need a barrel insert and thread the chamber for a breach plug and add a nipple for caps

I suspect that the conversion would cost you more than what you could get a .50 cal. muzzle loader for.
