I would like to be able to hide applications running in other workspaces, under Unity.

For example, chrome is open in workspace 1, and when I go to another workspace, it should be hidden from the launcher. Is this possible?

No, that's not possible. The launcher shows all running apps and doesn't provide a way to hide some.
