No, it isn't possible. VFIO only supports attaching endpoint devices.

You will need to attach each of your endpoint devices separately. (If
the issue is that you want both devices to show up on the same root port
in the guest, that is easily accomplished by manually setting the
guest-side pci address of the devices to have the same same bus/slot,
but different function; this does mean that you can't hotplug, but will
deliver the desired topology. Note that although I've heard of people
who thought that they needed devices to be on the same slot, I've never
seen any evidence that this was actually required by any OS or driver)
