By code regulations in most areas, you cannot mix different fuels in one chimney.

No, they don't make or recommend a power vent for a wood stove, since they can burn really hot and it would get out of control too fast pulling the air thru the wood.

Power vent your furnace (or boiler) and use the chimney for the coal stove.

If it has a hot water baseboard? isn't there a boiler? or is it electric basboard?

A lot of options.....

Sell the wood stove and get a used coal stoker that can be power vented.
Get the free wood and sell for coal.
Still alot less work and safer, just my 2 cents.
