First of all, greenboard is an obsolete material. Doesn't do anything better than regular drywall in a bathroom.

But to answer your question, yes you can use wallboard and then meet up with the 1/2" cement board. You'd tape and drywall compound the seam just like any other wall joint.

However, may I make a suggestion? First of all, look at this thread:

If you're interested in finding out a better method, let me know.
