Sure. Just create a new cluster according to any of the various guides you can find for creating a Hyper-V cluster. You can then migrate the existing VMs into the cluster. No need to reboot the existing host.

If the CPU between existing server and new server isn't the same model, you will need to turn on CPU compatibility on the VMs before they can live migrate between hosts. Turning on CPU compatability requires turning off the VM first.
