Hello nasir786:

It's not possible in the usual sense - you can't wire them together and have 2x computing power or anything.

There are techniques for clustering computers but they involve large numbers of machines running specialized software.  Here's an article on clustering:

There are motherboards that have multiple sockets - 2 , 4 or 8 - that use a form of resource sharing called summetric multi processing (SMP).  These are often used in servers and require specially desigend CPUs.  Intel Xeons and AMD Athlons are examples of these types of CPUs - there are specific models of each designed for 2, 4 or 8 - way SMP systems.

Here's a link to a basic article on SMP:
