I have never heard of or seen that practice. The Chair of Elijah is documented here. The "Moses Seat" is discussed in this answer. – b a Jan 29 '13 at 4:42

No such chair exists.

The Hebrew term for a seat may also be used to describe a rôle (the English word “position” has a similar feature): writings referring to people occupying Moses’ seat might refer to those who teach as Moses did.
