I have to do some work on a Torque cluster where I log on a User interface via ssh. I transfer files to my directory of the cluster and get files from the directory by using scp in my normal terminal (with "user@homecomputer:~$ scp...").

What I want to know is if it's possible to use the scp command also from the user interface of the cluster (the one with "[user@host ]$"? I hope I could explain what I am looking for - I am not a very experienced user of the terminal and especially of the technical terminology.

It's not possible directly. You can copy files via scp to the server because the server is listening on port 22 using a static IP. You can't scp from server to home computer since , you dont have sshd and static IP for home computer.
