I don’t think there is a lot of data on it, so the only way to know will be to try it. This is a list of genera that pears can be grafted to from a paper. I tried grafting to a noxious invasive plant here (common buckthorn Rhamnus cathartica) and several took but didn’t follow through due to a fear of delayed incompatibility.

They are both in the Rosaceae family, which helps.

Delayed incompatibility is the issue as it might initially take and then not leaf out in yr 2…
