It seems to me that by the definition of Modal, you could find a way to do
this, but your modeless' wouldn't be able to do anything, since the Modal
would be in control until closed, and all others would be disabled. I think
your other dialogs would need to be modal, and the calling one modeless, to
allow the calling one to give over control to one of the others, which could
then close the calling one as part of its own closing.
Of course, there are many others here who know more tricks than I, and might
know how to bypass the Modal behaviour, but this is my understanding of it all.
