Is it possible to trigger Actions/Methods via Web services?

Similar to exec_workflow, is there there a call that would execute actions or/and methods? For example, actions and methods tied to buttons. More specifically Converting to Opportunity, Mark Won, Mark Lost, etc.

Yes, you could trigger actions and methods using XMLRPC (Webservices), just be sure to pass the corresponding parameters to the method or action method. For example:

#Using direct XMLRPC using xmlrpclib

    oerp_common = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('{}/xmlrpc/2/common'.format(url))
    for d in dbs:
        password = dbs[d].get('admin_pass','admin')
        uid = oerp_common.authenticate(db, 'admin', password, {})
        oerp_models = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('{}/xmlrpc/2/object'.format(url))
        action = oerp_models.execute_kw(db, uid, password,'ir.module.module', 'update_list',[])


#this is using Zato ESB for Odoo:

with self.outgoing.odoo.get('solt-open').conn.client() as zoe:

voucher_pool = zoe.get_model('account.voucher')

voucher_pool.button_proforma_voucher([voucher_id], context=ctx)result = voucher_pool.onchange_journal([],journal_id[0], [], False, partner_info ['id'], False, float(vals.get('monto_pago')), 'receipt', invoice_info['company_id'][0], context={'invoice_id': invoice_info['id']})
