    Is it possible for a cpanel account website to use a database from another cpanel account as long as it has the username/password to the database?

    It is technically possible; to use a specific database simply ensure the configuration script or file for the web site defines a valid database user (db user name and db user password) that is granted access to the desired database; the database and database user may both be created and setup via cPanel.
