String Tenor

If I strung a six string Ukulele with guitar strings and tuned it the same way would it be the same to play?

I am thinking of purchasing a second ukulele but with 6 strings instead of 4, would i be able to play it like i play a regular guitar?

It's not the same. A 6-string ukulele has the first and third string paired. The pairing is somewhat akin to what you will find on a 12-string guitar.

From this you will understand that you don't have 6 strings evenly spaced across the fretboard. You have an image of such an instrument - a Lanikai LU6E 6-string Tenor Ukulele - here: http://www.guitarfactory.net/Folk/Ukuleles.htm or here: http://tenorukulele.net/buy/6-string-ukulele/ (it's also a video showing how these are tuned).

It would perhaps be more suitable for you to look at the six string Argentino tiple. This small tiple is tuned like a guitar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiple

Another alternative is to look into one of the many smaller travel guitars available online. Just search Google for 'travel guitars'.
