Every now and then, I am playing Terraria and a friend on Steam asks if they can join. I then have to exit the world and re-open it as a server in order for them to be able to join.
So, is there a way I can
open my world to Steam multiplayer (i.e. the equivalent of the 'Host & Play' option on the multiplayer menu) without exiting the world and re-joining?

No, as far as I can recall that is not possible.
What I like to do though, is just launching with Host & Play right away and setting a password for the server. This way my friends can join whenever they want but I can also keep everyone out who is not supposed to play with me.
