Can we always swap the position of sentence starting with "as well as" within sentences?

"As well as making it possible for people to eat more, a prosperous mechanized society means that most people take less exercise. "

"A prosperous mechanized society means that most people take less exercise, as well as making it possible for people to eat more."

"She has invited Jill as well as Kate."
"As well as Kate She has invited Jill"

"They like walking as well as skiing."
"As well as skiing they like walking."

You might want to tidy up the punctuation in the third and fourth, as well as the capitalisation.

Let's just say we can usually change its position.

Is this correct now?

"She has invited Jill, as well as Kate."
"As well as Kate, she has invited Jill"

In doing so, you made it less readable! Black font and the standard font size suffice.
Teacher,
what does "in doing so" mean? I couldn't find any equivalent in dictionaries.
