I doubt if it would be possible to find out, short of actually
performing such an experiment. The experiment would be considered very
unethical, so if it has been done, the people involved aren't going to
tell everyone.

I imagine it would look something halfway between a chimp and a human.

The most recent common ancestor of chimps and humans is about 6 MYA.
What about horses and donkeys, or liones and tigers?
