Yes, with a very big caveat.

The system is old circa 2008/09, so it won't run anything newer than High Sierra, and then only if you persevere and really work with the hack.

More likely you will be able to run something between Snow Leopard and El Capitan. There will be guides for similar Core 2 Duo systems on sites that were around when the older versions of OSX/macOS were released, i.e. Tonymacx86 or InsanelyMac.

There are no guides for running macOS on anything that old on this site.
