No, you can not.
But... You can store the result of an SP in a temp table

INSERT #Temp
EXEC <SP>

and use the table with a JOIN as normal.

Not directly.

You can store the output of Stored Proc in a temp table like:

Create table #temp
(
... -- define columns here
)

Insert into #temp
EXEC sp_something(...)


And then use temp table in SELECT statement like below:

Select ed.* from EmployeeDetails ed Join #temp t 
on ed.EmployeeName = t.EmployeeName
