Is it possible to use proprietary apps like ms-teams on void linux x86_64?
The vendor provides .deb and .rpm files.

They might work, but might be linked to incompatible libs/versions so you
have to test. You can extract .deb files with `ar x ...`...

I'd suggest taking a look on github/void-packages as there are some builds
scripts for non-free software, like Zoom, Spotify, Slack... which are not
available on regular xbps repos.

Is docker a possibility?

You can definitely run Docker on void (I do) and most probably be able to
run those binaries in a Debian container, but I'm not so sure how well the
GUIs would play ~ you'll have to share your X11/Wayland somehow and last
time I tried something like that, it didn't work (and I tried hard) :(

Triple-check it's a restricted package on https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages, or use xdeb but as a very, very last resort: https://github.com/toluschr/xdeb

Docker would be an enormous mess

flatpak would be a easier choice, its made for this while with docker you 
would have to manually try to get docker to play nicely with xorg/wayland, 
access to audio and dbus integration.
