John and Joseph are NOT interchangeable (which isn't to say no one ever changed their given name from one to the other---but it isn't a common change). However, if the person is of GERMANIC origin John (or Johan) could be a baptismal or Saints Name which isn't used in common everyday useage and the actual given name may well be Joseph. So for a German this could well be possible ... but the Johan/John name is considered more of a prename and not an actual given name.
