Axle swap

Is it possible to add rear pegs onto the Bianchi Parco Milano which has a Shimano Nexus Internal Hub 3-speed? Could I just change out the quick release axle with a standard bolt version?
It is extremely unlikely that you could use a solid axle for that hub. The hub likely uses it's axle as a drive reference with a toothed gear on the axle that the planetary gears connect with. Go find a blowup of the hub and you will see that the axle is an integral part of the hub gearing system, and as such is a specially designed item.
