Can you use Qantas/OneWorld status benefits for Malaysian Airlines flight but credit flight to British Airlines Executive Club?

I am QFF Platinum (Oneworld Emerald) and have to fly Malaysian later in the year. I have booked in O, which does not accumulate status credits or ff points with Qantas. I had a similar experience flying economy with Cathay earlier this year.

Is there a way that I can collect the points with my BA account, whilst also getting the perks of being Oneworld Emerald (lounge access in particular)? Thanks.

I have heard of a way.

Book flight with your Qantas membership number.
Access lounge on the day.
Leave lounge and go to gate much earlier than boarding time and get your loyalty program changed to the BAEC details.
