In a SQL Server Stored Procedure, is it possible to define a recordset and populate it with a select statement? Example would be "Set RS = db.openrecordset("Select * from table1). Then use the recordset and join it with another select * from table2. This would give the final result set for the final report builder.

Why not do the join first (all in SQL) and then retrieve it into a single recordset?

There are no such thing as 'recordset' in T-SQL. but you can create temprary table and then use it:
SELECT a,b,c
INTO #temp_result
FROM table_a
SELECT a,b,c,d
FROM tble_b,#temp_result
