No this is not possible. one server can have only SharePoint farm. But you have to mutliple farm's database on single SQL server.


The short answer is no. The long answer is it might be useful if we understood what you are trying to do. Why would you want multiple farms on a single server? If you need multiple URLs you can create several web applications or use host named site collections. If it is a security concern then this again can be achieved with separate web applications and content databases.
