You can't hit a specified nucleus. However, you can accelerate a large group of electrons (beta rays are simply epectrons resulting from beta decay) to hit a group of He4 nuclei (also accelerated) (alpha rays are He4 nuclei produced by alpha decay) and you will get the interaction. I don't believe anything of much interest will result.
