    Hi, I'm creating a FPS game, and I wonder to have my friend join me in the game and we can fight against each other. And I don't think I will make it big as a multiplayer game which has a server running to deal with multiple requests via network.

    I wonder if I can create two people game offline or in local area network.

    As it would be a FPS game, I can't have two people play in one scene like some two people 2D game. I wish I could have keyboard control and camera control by mouse separately for two of us.

    Would it be possible?

    Consider, you can use only one mouse on PC. But you could use multiple pads.

    You should decide, weather you want make split screen, or multilayer. Split screen is technically simpler to do.

    Could it possibly split screen to two PC or mac via Local Area Network?

    Then you need to build network solution. Is up to you.

    If you're going to do a split screen game, you'll probably want to support xbox or similar controllers. Implementing split screen will be significantly different from networked multiplayer. Yes you can do either or both, but this is non-trivial stuff.
