You mean, not using shell tools? If shell tools are OK then
you can feed it to this for example and hold your thumbs -

#! /bin/zsh

hide-win () {
    local win=$1
    wmctrl -r $win -b toggle,hidden
} # [1]

- but ...

... you can, but isn't it better to do this on the window
manager level?

What WM do you use?

For example, I use openbsd-cwm so I would do

bind-key   M-h   window-hide

in the config file [2], then do C-r which is

bind-key   C-r   restart

and try it :)
