You would have to have two three-way switches to do that, plus
adjust the wiring accordingly. One switch has hot to the common,
two travelers to the other switch, and common of the other switch
goes to the load.
Why not instead just put in a switch where you want it to be,
and then remove the switch and put a plate over the old
switchbox and forget about it? They make plates with no openings
in them just for that purpose.
