1) On phtml files

$this->getLayout()->createBlock('core/template')->setTemplate('template path')->toHtml(); // change the block type as per your need and change the template path as well.

2) From layout xml

    <block type="your block" name="name">
     <block type="core/template" name="name here" as="alias here" template="path/here/test.phtml"/>

Now call the file inside your block. you can call like this $this->getChildHtml(alias name);


You can try this

But you should be send few params

$productObject =Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load('[ProductID]');
$block= Mage::app()->getLayout()->createBlock('catalog/product_view')

// gerenarate html

 echo $block->toHtml()

Also note: product $productObject should be full product object
