Ok I have been wondering if you could do like your shoulders, biceps, triceps, lats, and chest all in the same day. And then some other day do legs. Like only 3-4 excerises, 3 sets each with 5-8 reps for each muscle. Could you do this or would this lead to overtraining?

that is quite a bit of work for one workout. if you do 3 sets of 3-4 exercises for each bodypart, you will do well over 40 sets in a single workout. personally, i have been doing a full body workout around 20 sets total, hitting all bodyparts and have found that to be taxing, but it works. more than 40 sets would be insane
Dan, I think he meant doing several compound lifts to hit all the muscles. Or I might've been mistaken. But if my assumption was correct, yes you could do that.

3-4 exercises per muscle? No.
3-4 exercises total to hit everything, sure.

I also do a full body workout once or twice a week doing at or around 20 sets. I used to do splits but I didn't feel like I was recovering enough in between workouts. The full body routine has been working for me for the last year or so and I have been consistently moving up in weights in all lifts.
i dont know i remember i used to do my entire workout in 1 day for a long ass time. i finally got smart and split it up and it worked much better for me
