This is not possible. If you're not using a quantum algorithm, but just the quantum hardware, then the thing is hardly a quantum computer, you're just talking about a faster architecture for classical computing. Which is of course interesting, but not quantum. And furthermore classical computing architectures have been researched for decades to the tune of ...

An $n$-level quantum system is an $n$-level quantum system, no matter if it's stored on $\lceil \log_2 n \rceil$ qubits or on $\lceil \log_3 n \rceil$ qutrits or other combinations of qudits. There would be costs to interoperating computers that use qudits with different numbers of levels, because you have to do work to convert between them (e.g. having to ...
