Has anyone tried creating one node cluster where master node and worker node remains in the same node

With rancher rke tool you can create a one node cluster with no issues.

A control plane node is already essentially a worker node. It just has a taint on it that prevents scheduling of workloads by default. Remove the NoSchedule taint and workloads should be schedulable.
