i need assistance in deciding what to do with a main stack vent running through a wall i plan to demolish...can i reposition the pipe approx. 36" away from its original location and reconnect it at a point in the basement. this means the main sewer running under the basement will not be perpendicular to the main soil stack and vent.

Other than telling you to check with your local code on this it sounds fine to me.

tj is a pro (I'm not), but I would like to add that you need to slope any horizontal sections of the vent about 1/8" per linear foot to keep rain water from building up.
Good Luck!

Yes that shouldn't be a problem, slope the vent so it will drain into
the sewer.
