In D&D 3.5e, if I multiclass my wizard with a sorcerer, would I be able to spontaneously cast my spells like a sorcerer and still get the rest of the spells that a wizard gets? Or is that not possible?

Yes and No.

You get both sorcerer spells and wizard spells, but you must keep track of them separately. Your sorcerer spells must come from the limited spells you have chosen to learn as a sorcerer, have their save DC set with Charisma, and use your sorcerer spells per day. Your wizard spells must be prepared from a spellbook, have their DC set with Intelligence, and use your wizard spells per day.

The two do not mix, and you do not get the ability to spontaneously cast your wizard spells (or prepare your sorcerer spells from your spellbook).

But see the ultimate magus prestige class from Complete Mage for a way to partially mix the two, as well as advance both at the same time.

On that note, Ultimate Magus is available for free on the Wizards site, as it is the the Complete Mage excerpt. – Forrestfire Aug 21 '14 at 16:26
@Forrestfire Oooh, you found it! I spent like five minutes looking for that before giving up. I thought Wizards had removed the page entirely; Google just could not find it. – KRyan Aug 21 '14 at 16:27
They changed the location of their 3.5 articles. If you can get your hands on the original link (I grabbed it from a handbook), replacing "www" with "archive" will do the trick. – Forrestfire Aug 21 '14 at 16:51
