Is it possible to bind my mac to more than one domain?

If so how do you accomplish this?

Do you mean multiple AD domains?  If so, why would you want to do that?  You cannot even do that with windows...

The route to go is cross-domain trusts between the multiple domains if you need to access resources in each.

The mac I am trying to bind has already been bound to a domain where my friend works. I want to bind the computer to the domain where I work at. The problem is I do not have the admin password to unbind it from the other domain.

No I'm pretty sure you cannot.

If you try to unbind it with a random password you should get an incorrect password with a force unbind option. This will unbind the mac, but leave its computer account in AD.
