Yes, and one of the best ways to pull hook is to move the ball forward and one of the best ways to push slice it to move the ball back.
It depends a lot on swing mechanics and what the clubhead is doing through the impact zone. Weak grip with out to in swing path and open face can do what you suggest and strong grip with in to out swing path with closed face can do what I mentioned.
Of course there are endless variations on the above all of which I am very capable of. In general if a person is playing with a strong grip and learning to swing in to out then moving the ball back will reduce the pulls and hooks. HSS and Simple Swing for instance...
