rclpy is an API from ROS2. It is based on the C based rcl. Do we need to have a ROS2 installation on the machine where I want to use rclpy ?

Yes. You need a full ROS 2 installation.

Ok...but i thought it gives you an access to all the ROS functionalities and could be downloaded (rclpy) on a non ROS macine and then used to connect to a ROS2 machine ? @William
