I want to join two iMacs together, but what I want to achieve is that when i use FCPX, then FCPX uses two computers, when I render it uses both computers to make it faster. Is it possible?

Prior to FCP X you have Qmaster as System Preferences pane to distribute the load between computers. With the advent of FCP X, Qmaster is now part of the Compressor software so you should have Compressor installed on both Macs, then in Compressor 4 go to the 'Apple Qmaster' menu and select 'share this computer'.
