I was wondering whether me and a friend (both with powerful graphic cards), would be able to choose to work on the same block, therefore solving it faster and theoretically earning bitcoins faster? Thanks

Yes. Point is that you will earn twice of 0.

Graphics cards are too slow by now by a factor of around 1000 - mining is done using specialized chips these days. And twice "awfully terribly ridiculously slow" is STILL "awfully terribly ridiculously slow".
