I'm not sure I understand your question.

Each version of Access has its own version of the Runtime. Are you asking whether you can install, say, the Access 2013 Runtime on a system that already has Access 2010 or Access 2016 on it? There will likely be issues...

I want to install a Microsoft Access Runtime 2007 Packaged solution on a computer which already has MS Access 2016 and runs on windows 10
I will only be using the runtime application most of the time, the full version of access will not be used by the end user as he is not familiar with MS Access

I'm not sure, but it should work. I've done it the other way round, full version of Access 2007 with runtime for the O365 (2016) version of Access. However, you may run into the lengthy and annoying delay caused by the reconfiguration required when launching one version or the other after working with its counterpart. For your end users, deploying the runtime alone is the logical approach.

Also, keep in mind that you should be developing for users in whatever version they use. So, if your users are all on the 2007 runtime, YOU should be developing only in the 2007 version for them.
