Is there problems with breeding a charolais bull with a bison cow?

There could very well be. Charolais are notorious for siring large calves, and as such this could prove to be a really big problem for a bison momma. Bison are naturally adapted to give birth to small calves and to give birth quickly. If the bison cow cannot give birth to such a large calf, then she will be in serious trouble.
