This is unfortunately not possible to the best of my knowledge. While most bluetooth devices can pair to multiple devices simultaneously, they can only input/output from one source at a time usually. This is usually to stop interference, and a lack of processing power. The bluetooth chips inside headsets and other I/O devices are generally not powerful enough to distinguish two sources simultaneously.

Your best "middle ground" solution would be to skype using your headphones and play your game through your TV/speakers, since the game audio is arguably less necessary than being able to hear voice.
