Rim Joist

We need to vent our dryer through the floor and out of the house in an interior room about 10 feet from the outside wall. Can you cut a 4 inch hole through a rim joist.

Yes. Rim joists are generally supported along their full length so they aren't spanning a distance like a regular floor joist. Just make sure you use galvanized steel duct and minimize the number of bends.
