Help to transplant a rosemary plant from purchased pot to small planter. I purchased a Rosemary plant. It is root bound. Can I pull the roots away from the root ball? And maybe cut the root ball so it fits in my planter?

Yes, you can. This is called root pruning and is a common practice with root bound plants. When you repot the plant, make sure the container drains well and choose a pot about 1-2 sizes up from the one i is currently growing in.
