Only if you want to make life for yourself very difficult, Magento is not designed to act as a marketplace, it can be coerced but it is painful. Almost all marketplaces use custom developed software, you are better off with a framework with built in product manager and web frontend development.
It is possible with Magento Marketplace to turn your store to a marketplace. As you have required you can create a perfect marketplace like ebay, etsy and many more. Using this simple script it is possible to manage seller and buyer with ease, payment transaction is simple as well.
