You are talking about multiple axis machines-I've seen up to 6 axis of operation.

The other option is a combination mill-lathe, check Sherline? and Taig? for out-of-the-box minis that run on a desktop (7x10 I think).

Actually, you can "turn" on a 3 Axis machine tool. There's a company supplying a rig, including a chuck that mounts in the spindle. Very easy to have a "tool changer" too.

Not sure what you mean. A shaper is a planing process.
