I was wondering if is possible to use whatever programs that I have in a PC by doing a virtual machine of it, and running it in another PC without installing them again.

You can make an image of your hard drive and convert it into a virtual disk which can then be used to run a virtual machine.

That is the point of virtualizing a system. You can use Microsofts disk2vhd utility to convert existing Windows installs into a vhd file which can then be imported into your hypervisor like VirtualPC, Virtualbox, VMWare, etc.

Have a look at Paragons solution Go Virtual. It's very easy to use. And supports multiple virtualization platforms. Depending on your budget you could also have a look at Paragon Virtualization Manager Corporate 2010. It's not free but it works very nicely.
