Yes you can activate the 32 bit after you install the 64 bit, but only if you DON'T activate 64 bit first.

If you're not sure, then install 64-bit (but DO NOT activate it) and check your games and apps. If they don't work, then wipe and install 32- bit, and you can then activate your key.
If you activate your 64-bit installation however, you wont be able to re-install 32-bit and activate that instead.
