Is it possible to limit the video memory a software can use? In my case, I want to tell a game I have half the memory to test some performance issues.

I don't think this is possible. Some games have command line switches to restrict memory usage, you might want to investigate that.

Some video cards share the RAM as the VRAM, and you can adjust the size in the BIOS.
