Sure, a simple redirect as you probably already know.

Since the URL displayed is handled by the browser you will see the port
number.  The only way around that is to proxy the other page.

to be involved.  As stated you have conflicting requirements.

Perhaps if you told us what you were trying to accomplish someone might
have a better solution for you.
