You can kind of do it with the daemon.  I don't use it myself, but the
manual explains it.

Unfortunately no.  Emacs itself is single-threaded (except for I/O
subprocesses) and packages go to great lengths to simulate background
behavior.  Gnus is one of the reasons why people are talking about
making Emacs support multiple threads in the Emacs development mailing
lists, but a) it's all talk so far, and b) it's been proposed many times
before.  So at least for the next year or two I wouldn't expect things
to change.
