Creating an SSIS packege. Is it possible to create a sql task that runs a query that uses database name as a parameter?

example : Insert into mydb.ssis.mytable1
Values
(Select * from ?.prod.mytable1)

The parameter values should be coming from a user variable. Is that possible?

Thanks.

Yes of course, sure
Just add Expressions in a variable and it will do.

dynamic SQL would do it...
declare @sqlquery varchar(4000)
SELECT @sqlquery='Select * from '+@yourvariable+'.prod.mytable1'
EXEC(@sqlquery)

Or, perhaps, a better approach might be to use variables in the ConnectionManager for the Instance and catalog settings.
