You can access the lounge by flashing your card, but you will not be able to get additional baggage allowance unless your BA silver number is on the booking for the benefit to kick in.

It was not an option offered to me when I called in for our last redemption. I seem to recall the agent explicitly telling me that there is no way to reduce the Avios amount with cash like on ba.com.
