Your post is a bit confusing.

When you say "one wire comes into the outlet", do you mean that only one cable comes into the box containing the receptacle? And does this one cable contain exactly one black wire, one white wire, and one bare grounding wire?

If all of the above is true, then you cannot make half the receptacle always hot and half the receptacle switch (without pulling more cable through your walls).

If my guesses were wrong, post back and clarify.
