No.

Depending on what result you want to achieve, it might be possible to animate 2 different particle layers with different settings, then fade one into another.

Also it's possible to animate the particle layer's properties like anything else, so you can change direction and size.

You need to enable 'Use Base Layer As Source' and then you can animate the size, as well as the shape, of the emitter.
