Yes. and no. Yes, it is possible.... the technique is called porting. however, unless you are an exert programmer, or have a team of programmers, the port will most likely be extremly difficult. There is no tool that i am aware of that will read (for example) a ps2 game and port it to a gamecube.

You can "port" console games to PC (in a sense) using emulators, but that's about it. If you want to, say, run Halo 3 on a PS3, you'd need to be an expert programmer, have a few hundred gallons of caffeinated beverage, and LOTS of time. The original source code would help, but that is rarely if ever released. Here's a website with a whole bunch of emulators if you want to try and run them on your computer http://www.emulator-zone.com/.
