You can't repeat in band without a duplexer or other means of sufficent tx to rx isolation. That's why the cross band function is so popular.

No, it is not possible. It isn't able to receive a signal and re-transmit it within in the same band. (Hence it is called "Cross-Band Repeat"). In order to do what you propose, a second mobile or portable would be needed and a repeater device used to take the receive audio and transmit it through the mobile. Also note that the frequency used going to the vehicle cannot be the same as the frequency being transmitted to the repeater.

Hopefully someone else can verify this and correct me if I am wrong.

While you could build that device with seperate antennas the receivers would be desensed to the point of being worthless.
