Is it possible to give a player a cape? Either so only I can see the cape, or everyone on the server can see it. Mods or texture pack editing are fine.

It is important that only a single player has the cape, rather than everyone having a cape.

You want Cape Mod. The player will need to upload their cape for you to see it, and only people with the mod will be able to see capes.

Just a quick note, you can actually force member that wishes to join your server to have the same mods (although you might need a plugin). –  Ruddie Feb 17 '12 at 16:25
Interesting, I didn't know this. –  fredley Feb 17 '12 at 17:28
Try installing a mod onto the server I believe that should do it. Although it might only work with just bukkit (which is a minecraft plugin wihch is very usefull for servers!). –  Ruddie Feb 17 '12 at 18:25
@Ruddie are you talking about Spoutcraft? It's a plugin that keeps player's client mods up to date with the server's mods. –  Jonny Feb 17 '12 at 21:35
I haven't heard about that, but the one I knew was not keeping the mods up to date, it simply refused players with non-up to date mods to log in. –  Ruddie Feb 19 '12 at 12:33

You can use Mineshafter. This mod also gives you the ability to enable capes.

Mineshafter is a mod that gives an alternative to Minecraft's own online services.

Clients will have to install Mineshafter too.

Below is link to official site for this mod. First thing that pops upt when typing mineshafter in google
