is it possible to have a single multicored machine as a cluster?

That wouldn't exactly be a cluster, would it?  But you can certainly run a lot of the software associated with Beowulf clusters: a batch system (TORQUE, SGE, etc), MPI, ... so in practice you can use your 8 core workstation just like you would a cluster.
