let's say I've a two node failover cluster with Windows Server 2008R2 SP1, I wish to fix the preferred node that owns the cluster (obviously if both nodes are alive). Is this possible? How?

I'm curious to know why you think it matters which node owns the cluster. I am unaware of any way to specify a preferred owner of the cluster. You probably could write a script that you could run as a scheduled job to periodically move the cluster owner back to the node you prefer. The following article has an example on how to do this.

In windows 2008R2 you can't change the cluster preferred owner in the gui.
You can change the cluster core resource with powershell. ( in windows 2012 you can do this in the gui also )
Move-ClusterGroup "Cluster Group"
this is the only way to do this.
