You can install VirtualBox headless, meaning running it from the shell. Maybe you mean you want to run virtual machines remotely or on servers with no GUI?

Yes you can create a virtual machines without virtualbox. Virtualbox is just programs used to create virtual machines. There are others like qemu, kvm, Vmware and Citrix.

First be very specific.

How do you want to create virtual machines?
How will you be accessing and managing them?
Will they be stored and access remotely?
Will they be created on your personal computer?
What OS are you using?
What systems will be running them?

These are just a sample of the questions that must be answered first. Answer these questions and you will get back more information.
