I am newbie in ROS. I wonder if we can create a master control to interact with two separate systems which has ROS hydro installed. Or to be appropriate, Can I control two separate ROS Hydro using another computer which acts like a master?

Can you clarify why specifically for Hydro?

ROS provides this functionality. Have a look at this guide on ROS across multiple machines. Here is network setup guide to make it work.

To launch nodes on different machines with single launch file have a look at roslaunch's machine tag here.
