Program 4-Port Sweeps Using 16-Port Calibration

I am very curious about the following:

Background: I do 16-Port sweeps ending with several .s16p files. However, much of that data is never used. 

Is it possible to do the following with a PNA-X (I'm using the N5225A)?:

1) Do a 16-Port Calibration
2) Tell the VNA to do an arbitrary number of 4-Port Sweeps.
3) Use the errors terms from the 16-Port Calibration to correct the 4-Port Sweeps I have told the VNA to collect.

This is done through the use of GPIB.
If this is possible, could you please guide me into executing this with my setup? This is crucial.
