There are "table toppers" for billiard tables that will give you a flat surface that will also protect the felt.
We played sometimes on top of a friend's pool table, and quite frankly, not a great experience. Height is wrong, can't put your knees under the table and it's just darn uncomfortable...
I'd choose one and do it right. Now, that said, it's very easy to make/buy a poker table that can be folded up and stored (I hung mine on the wall of the garage). If you can move other furniture to make 'game night' space for the poker table, I'd go that route.
It depends on which game is more important to you. But note that a game room with just a poker table looks good, too. The advantage of a poker table vs pool table is the number of other uses it has (lots of games can be played, with more concurrent players, too).
