is it possible to start a x-com dos game, save it, place it in a x-com ce an continue it without bugs/crashes? and afterward put it back in dos to resume the game?...

The files are identical, so there's usually no problem switching save games between the Dos or CE version.

Any crashes you experience is more a fault of the game than the savegame.

I once got into a situation where a game in the CE version would always crash in the battlescape after a certain number of turns. It didn't seem to happen in the dos version (the Dos version appears more lenient with general protection faults), so I got through the problem there and then continued the game in CE afterwards.

That's not always going to be the case, but it was a good swapping exercise. Perhaps it would be best to only swap the games saved in the Geoscape.
