If you are required to have an interlock device on your car for 1 year if convicted of a DUI, are you still allowed to drive another vehicle not owned by you?

Such as a friends or a rental?

You as the driver with the restricted license must maintain compliance with the state law in which you were convicted.  In other words, you are not supposed to drive any vehicle unless it has an ignition interlock device.  How that is monitored from state to state is difficult and almost impossible to know until you are caught. If you are driving a car without the device in your own state and you are stopped the cops will know and big trouble will ensue.
