"can i run 64 bit os in 32 bit os "

Your title does not make a lot of sense.

Your CPU and system is almost certainly 64bit capable.
You can install and run either a 32bit or 64bit OS on it.

There are very few reasons to install a 32bit OS.

Please clarify exactly what you're trying to do.

In regards to 32 bit versus 64 bit, it's easy:

If your door is 32 bits wide, and you have to carry a mattress that's 64 bits through it.... can you do that holding it normally? No.
What if your door is 64 bits wide, and you have a mattress that is 32 bits wide? Of course you could!

Same goes for basically every situation this problem crops up. 32x software on a 64x OS? Can do! 64x software on a 32x OS? Nope.
32x OS on a 64x Processor? Can do! The opposite... not so much.
