No, context doesn’t provide latex style switches but you can define them with

\definealternativestyle [bfseries] [\bf]
\definealternativestyle [itseries] [\it]

In MKII \sc switch to a different font but MKIV can just enable the “smcp” feature.

Adding “smcp=yes” doesn’t work as option for \setmainfont because you can
use \definfontfeature and overload the “default” set, the only valid options
from \definefontfeature are “script”, “expansion” and “protrusion”.
