Is it possible for phoenixes that have detection to be able to pick up burrowed swarm hosts to kill/neutralize them?

Well, phoenixes can pick up borrowed units, so I guess swarm hosts don't count as different

See here: wiki entry for phoenixes

... Burrowed zerg units will be unburrowed by the ability, and will reburrow when they fall back to the ground...

Yes, it is possible.

They tested this is the following youtube video: SC2 Mythbusters Episode 1

Perfect video to show this! –  Nick122 Mar 19 '13 at 18:04

I have seen it happen in casts in the beta. I am not sure if that ability has been patched out or is still relative, but my guess would be that it is still possible.
