Is this possible? I have some ideas for this summer Don't wanna buy a whole new wheelset. I know VeloOrange has quickie interchangeable freehubs but its designed for their hubs.

sure you can , it is building a wheel around a different hub,
but you may just as well build a second rear wheel..

there may be cross over cassettes.
others can speak to that.

Some higher end hubs will allow you to change freehubs. If you want to run campy you can also get a shimano splined and campy spaced cassette like this one. There are other companies out there as well but I can not think of them.

What brand hub do you have

As Nubcake mentioned, some hubs have replaceable cassette bodies so you can convert your wheel between Campy & Shimano.

American Classis also makes conversion cassettes to put a Campy type cassette on Shimano hub.

but the 3rd party hubs are neither campag or shimano, so question:
can I replace Shimano Freehub (10 speed) with a Campy freehub? (10 speed
answer : No, the driver portion of the Hubs are not interchangeable.

any more than a Ford water pump will not bolt up to a GM engine..

You may find 3rd party cassettes re spaced to synchronize,
to go On the freehub, you have.
