Not really. You might be better off just crediting your United flights to Miles and More

You can go in your mileage plus profile and designate Miles and More as your preferred airline mileage account and it will show your star alliance status and credit your miles and more account (bypasses earning status on UA). Alternatively, you can ask for a gold status match on UA and they will ask for your flying record last year to determine if they will grant it or not (at gold level seems reasonable they would).

In the past, you could put your M&M into FQTS and MP into FQTV to use M&M status while earning on MP while you make the switch. Don't think you can do that anymore. You can use your physical card to get zone 2 boarding check-in, and lounge access while you accrue to UA. I use my PPS Club card to access the United Club while earning miles on MileagePlus. United doesn't status match Star Alliance status. You could get a match on another carrier and get United to match that, though.

If you email United they are typically quite willing to match status, esp if you come from another Star member

Don’t...do...it

Yeah if you're high status on a partner you should reach out. Special situation

People have short memories. Here is a picture of the havoc Delta variant wreaked in India a few months ago. We are not far from this in the US if the vaccination rates don't increase. People here defending not taking vaccines and not wearing masks just amazes me. Folks here are devoid of basic thinking let alone critical thinking.
