PCLinuxOS has a script called mylivecd, which allows the user to take a ‘snapshot’ of their current hard drive installation (all settings, applications, documents, etc.) and compress it into an ISO CD/DVD image. This allows easy backup of a user’s data and also makes it easy to create your own custom live CD/DVD.

Is it possible for Sparkylinux to have such a script?

Try Sparky Backup System - 'sparky-backup-sys' package in our repo.

I've installed it. Thanks. Can this iso be installed on a different system with different configuration?

Of course.
It's a copy of your sparky installation so it has all drivers, tools, apps, etc. to run on another machine.

If you're refering to a different hardware configuration, then you shouldn't have problems. The only place where you can expect problems are the proprietary graphic drivers if you use any.
There's no such thing as "impossible". :)
