Hi Folks. First post. As the subject states, is it possible on a small frame/new 20ga 870? If so, would the bolt or ??? need to change?

It would probably shoot, but probably not extract unless you changed the bolt to a 28 gauge one to get the extractor in the right space. Ejector would also not eject it. Magazine will not work either. At best you would have a clumsy single shot that did not want to eject shells.

Reminds me of something a friend once said to me regarding a new-to-him house he bought, "I got this great doorknob, I just need to remodel around it". Thank you for the insight - as I suspected.
