Yes, this is called "routing."
See most basic TCP books on it.
For most proper routing schemes, you need one set of addresses and
cooperation of your ISPs. This used to be basic. Now we're often
stuck with using the lo-cost, consumer Internet (now free of Clue!)
so you may have some issues depending on your goals, setup and needs,
whatever they might be.
