Nodes cannot be used as nodelets. So what you ask is not supported right now.

Whether something is a node or a nodelet is a programming-time decision (ie: there are different ways in which you create a node or a nodelet). This cannot be changed in ROS 1.

How Can I use different node as a nodelet in my pkg?

If however you are asking whether it's possible to load a nodelet from another package, then that would be fully supported. If you could clarify we can address that question.

Edit:

So, it means: one nodelet manager = one pkg. Cannot include nodelet from other pkg?

That is fully supported. Nodelets are "just" plugins (literally: they're stored in .so (shared libraries)).
