That's not a good way to go then.
You should NOT use the same controller on two different applications at the same time.
You CAN use 2 different controllers with 2 different applications at the same time (so that each application is controlled by one controller and provides feedback in one controller)
The problem is quite more complex than play button registering at two applications at the same time. All modern controllers receive feedback for their leds and other status from the connected application. If two different applications send different status messages back on a device, the device can develop unpredictable behavior for BOTH applications.

Not sure if he tries to run both apps at the same time, i could be wrong, but anyways, regarding his original question, yes, its possible, but requires custom actions.

For controller. you can map the PLAY button as .. loaded ? nothing : play_pause
Same goes for the skin, but you need to edit the XML and replace the button action (play_button) with .. loaded ? nothing : play_button
