In principle, it "should" be possible to build a PCI-Express
card containing a PCI-Express to PCI bridge chip and one or
more PCI slots.  I have no idea whether such a device is
commercially available.

In practice, the combination might not fit in the box, and/or
the BIOS might not be set up to enumerate a PCI bus downstream
of the PCI-Express bus.
