I have read that in SharePoint 2003 there was a web part whereby users can create their own usernames using a web part. I am on FBA (Claim-based).

Can this functionality be achieved in SharePoint 2010.

This is not something that's possible OOTB. Even with FBA, you'll need additional code (codeplex has a great one) to create the accounts in the FBA store. You could build a request page for which would allow anonymous users access to request a login, specifying their user name.
