Not directly. T-mobile's Treo is GSM, and Verizon requires the CDMA version.

You can, however, sell the T-Mobile Treo on ebay, and sign up with Verizon
and buy the CDMA version. Cost is still high with Verizon, at $450 with
a two year contract.

PS: I have an older Kyocera 7135 palm phone running palm OS 4, and would
welcome OS 5, but I find the main limiting factor of my current device is
the screen resoluiton of 160x160. When I found out the Treo also has the
same 160x160 screen, I lost my desire to upgrade.

No, you cannot reuse the Treo from T-Mobile. It is GSM on 1900MHz , and
Verizon is CDMA on 850MHz. It cannot be 'adapted', 'retuned' or modified in
any way.

Sell it on eBay, buy a new Verizon phone.
