When making an electromagnet should you use an iron or aluminum nail?

Aluminium is not a magnetic metal.


Can you use an aluminum core for the magnet?

I cannot remember for sure, but in an electromagnet, an aluminum core would not have any permeability to add to the electromagnet's strength. An electromagnet is more efficient when a thicker core is used; it generates more power. The material you use should be prone to magnetism, as in attracted by permanent magnetic apparatuses or the such. So, an aluminum bar/core (cannot be magnetized), like you stated, wouldn't be the best choice for your magnet's core.
