Connecting USB device into GPIO ?

As topic leads, can a USB device be hooked into GPIO’s?
I need Wifi and BLE devices in BBG but dues one USB its one or other. So since BLE uses less power i wonder if im able to connect BLE dongle into GPIO’s instead ?
I would guess this is question for both hardware and software topics.



There are some BLE SPI modules out there, and maybe some I2C BLE modules. The BBB does have both SPI and I2C.

Any reason not to use a powered USB hub? It could probably power the BBG as well.
