    Is this possible? If so, how would it be done?

    The question doesn't even make sense. SMB shares can only be mounted via SMB: NTFS mounting is for local disks. It's up to the hosting machine to mount the drive using whatever format is required, FAT-32, HFS or NTFS. It then presents this on the network via SMB.

    So if you have a Windows machine with an NTFS drive shared out via SMB then any Mac can read/write this share as the Windows machine is dealing with the NTFS stuff.
