Is it possible to have Ue4 render the graphics with a black line around everything similar to a cell shaded style, or would that require models specifically prepared for that purpose?

There's a great post here about achieving a similar effect: http://www.michalorzelek.com/blog/tutorial-creating-outline-effect-around-objects/

The general steps involved are to create a depth map and then create a material that utilizes that depth information to perform edge-detection on your geometry. This is not an extremely simple thing to do, but it is possible.
