No.  If the program is not appropriately multithreaded you cannot force it to be multithreaded.

in unix there are commands called pbind or psrest to bind an application to a process. But I am not sure if there is a windows counterpart of it

Again, these are the unix commands and they don't work in windows. I am not sure if there are any such commands in windows. But here is the info on those commands:
