I usually use TeX to write my documents, but say for some reason I want to use Word Document (e.g. sending the document to a friend for editing). So is it possible to apply templates in Microsoft Word?

This seems to be off-topic (it's about Word, not TeX). If I were not a mod I've vote to close – Joseph Wright Jan 9 '11 at 21:31
I thought so, but didn't really find another place to ask. Tell me where to ask this and I will close it myself :-) – Rafid Jan 9 '11 at 21:36
@Rafid: What exactly do you want to know? How to format a Word document to be like a LaTeX document? If so you could go here: tex.stackexchange.com/q/8308/2693 – Alan Munn Jan 9 '11 at 21:40
@Rafid Word has its own templating system see ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/… for some examples. – Yiannis Lazarides Jan 9 '11 at 21:42
@Alan, thanks, it seems that @Yiannis answered my question. What I want to know is whether Word itself has templating system and whether it is to apply templates for it like it is for LaTeX. For example, although I am using LaTeX, if for one reason, I have to use Word one day, will it be easy for me to apply templates from different conferences/journals? – Rafid Jan 9 '11 at 21:46

Word has its own templating system see http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/authors_journals.html#sect2 for some examples.
