Can one root this palm if part of the trunk is cut off?
Unfortunately, pygmy palm cannot be propagated in this way. Like most palms, it can only be grown from seeds.
Can I transplant a pygmy palm into a pot? I live in Phoenix.
Yes, if it is small enough to handle, you can transplant it into a pot. First, water the palm to ensure the roots will stay healthy during transplantation. Then, dig up the root ball, trying to get as much of the roots as possible. Here is more about how to transplant palms:

I have a pygmy palm that I purchased a couple of weeks ago and planted in a large container with potting soil. I have kept is watered but not too much water, but the palm looks like it's dying. It's becoming very thin and drooping. What might I do to help it?
It sounds like your little palm is experiencing a bit of transplant shock. I hope its new container is only a size or two larger than the last. Make sure you don't overwater the plant, and that it has some sunlight and rich soil. It should perk up soon, but moving to a new residence can be traumatic. Here's a helpful article:

t is wilted. It has been watered sufficiently but what was so surprising was the suddeness of this wilting. We did not add ammendments while planting. We live in Phoenix, Az upon reading , we are concerned about bud wilt fungus. The whole plant is in the same condition?i did upload a before and after photo. Leaves are greyish green not the vibrant green as before. We bought it at Lowes. Thank you! Barbara
I see a lot of cement and gravel. Was the planting hole gravelly? It may be lacking in nutrients. It does need well-draining soil but more of a sandy soil. Since you've only had it a short time, I'm more inclined to think it is transplant shock more than disease. It would be beneficial to get a soil test to find out if the soil is lacking. Read the care notes below and start a feeding program as well as regular watering but not overwatering. (If you do lose it, Lowe's has a one-year guarantee on plants with receipt.) Also, is there enough room for its future height?
