Go to reply no.
I note that there is already a Guide in flashing Mi 6x to Mi A2 in the link below:
http://en.miui.com/thread-3439864-1-1.html
But many report OTA cannot be done after flashing to A2 (OTA can be download but get error when install)
Then I found another guide in chinese forum using QPST with a little bit more setup instead of Miflash to flash A2 rom on 6X.
You may try the translated guide below to see if OTA work after flashing to A2, comment below for the result, Thanks

Warning 1.Need to Unlock bootloader first
2.This method is not an ordinary recovery update, but will re-partition the phone during the operation, so the operation steps may be more complicated, please be cautious!
3.Since Xiaomi 6X recently introduced anti-rollback mechanism, this mechanism has not been added to the official Android One of Xiaomi A2, so if the mobile phone has been updated to Developer version MIUI 8.8.6 and above, or stable version V9.6.4. 0 and above, please do not try, otherwise your phone may be bricked.

(Video tutorial: https://www.bilibili.com/video/av28444361)

1. Download Mi A2 Fastboot rom and unzip http://bigota.d.miui.com/V9.6.9. ... _8.1_53f18f370a.tgz
2. Download Mi A2 Toolkit and unzip
https://www.dropbox.com/s/bh9bim ... %20Toolkit.rar?dl=0
3. Use Toolkit's "abl.elf" file to replace the file with the same name in the images folder in the Mi A2 Fastboot rom folder
4. Extract QPST_2.7.460.zip from the toolkit and run QPST_2.7.460.exe
5. In the pop-up QPST software,Under "Select Build Type" choose "Flat Build",Under "Select Programmer" click browse and select "prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf" in toolkit,Under "Download" click "Load XML" and choose "rawprogram0.xml" and "patch0.xml" in the Mi A2 Fastboot rom
6. Reboot the phone into Fastboot mode, connect to the computer, and in the adb command line enter "fastboot oem edl"  
7. After the phone appears 9008 (the title of the QPST software), click the "Download" button in the QPST software Download item and wait for the result.

To get Magisk Root
1. Reboot the phone to Fastboot mode and connect to computer
2. Move boot.img from the toolkit to the same directory as adb
3. In adb command line enter in order
fastboot flash boot_a boot.img
fastboot flash boot_b boot.img
4. Install Magisk Manager,enjoy.

How to back to MIUI
1. Download Mi 6X Fastboot rom and unzip(Developer version 8.7.26 http://bigota.d.miui.com/8.7.26/ ... 1_cn_446259fe36.tgz
2. Run QPST software,Under "Select Build Type" choose "Flat Build",Under "Select Programmer" click browse and select "prog_emmc_firehose_Sdm660_ddr.elf" in toolkit,Under "Download" click "Load XML" and choose "rawprogram0.xml" and "patch0.xml" in the Mi 6X Fastboot rom
3. Reboot the phone into Fastboot mode, connect to the computer, and in the adb command line enter "fastboot oem edl"  
4. After the phone appears 9008 (the title of the QPST software), click the "Download" button in the QPST software Download item and wait for the result.

The rollback 6X rom download link in my post is developer version, but I think you can download stable version and follow the same steps and back to stable version if you want
