Is it possible to install a remote switch for a ceiling light which only has a pull cord on/off switch? 1930s home with few wall switches for ceiling lights.

Yes, either you can do what is called a "Switch leg", which is a pull of 14/2 romex to a switch in a "old-work" box on the wall, or find a small enough remote control module for a ceiling fan, that will sit between the box for the wiring, and the fixture, but that may be hard, since most are about 2-3" in thickness.
