What is your goal, and why would you want it?

.lkrn target needs PCBIOS interupts to work at all - and it can't run under EFI.
.efi target needs EFI framework to run - and can't run under PCBIOS.

If what you want is to start ipxe in EFI mode from some other
bootloader then you need to figure out how that bootloader should be
used to start an efi binary.
It might help to talk about starting efishell from said bootloader.

creating a binary that includes both pcbios and efi exectuables (such
as what wimboot does) could be possible, but due to the limited
available memory in pcbios that would not be really usable.
