I thought about it and I honestly have no idea if it would work. But would it be possible to use a DVI to VGA adapter the other way around? So the signal comes from the vga side not the dvi side.

If you mean VGA out, DVI in, then no. The input's expecting DVI.

So it will only accept signals coming from the DVI side of the adapter then and will only output on the VGA side correct?

Yes.

If you want a technical explanation, the only pins that actually interface with the DVI plug are the DVI-A pins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DVI_Connector_Types.svg, pinout http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DVI_pinout.svg).
