Yes you can do it.

In fact there is more than one way.

If you want /foo/ to always be the same as /xyz/bah/ you can do it
with an alias.

        Alias /foo /var/www/xyz/bah/
                   ^^^^^^^^^ note full path name on server.

If you want the browser to redirect and reload from a different URL,
you can do:
        Redirect /foo http://x.y.z/xyz/bah
