can we change z value of column and area line chart components and smooth lines

Is there any way to change the z sorting on a column and line chart? Currently if we add an line chart and select it to show the area it appears in the front and washes over every column. That's my primary challenge.

 

Secondarily, is there a way to smooth out the line chart? I've tried changing joint type from Round to Bevel to miter and there is no perceivable difference.

 

The photo attached with purple columns is in Power BI desktop. I'm trying to match a visual that is in a competitors tool that we have used previously, pictured below with dark orange columns

Thank you for your help with this.

David
