This is a rather simple question for experts in the mail server area.

I purchased a custom domain and I would like to have two mail service providers to handle my emails. Google.com and Outlook.com because some of my users are used to GMail and others to Outlook interface and I'd like to keep them using what they like.

Is it possible to setup MX records with my registrar that particular emails will go to Outlook servers and others to Google's?

How can I set this up? Is it possible?

No. Its not possible, as an MX record binds to a domain name, not a user.

You would need to get 1 provider accepting all your emails and then forwarding them on, as appropriate to the second provider.
