I'm working on this sweater from Lion Brand:
http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/70112.html?noImages=0
I wanted the sweater a little longer, but have now ended up with something closer to a tunic. The rows I added are all at the bottom of the back of the sweater and this sweater is knit from the bottom up.
Can I get rid of some rows without undoing the whole back?
Any help would be appreciated.

You can cut off the cast on row and unravel it to about where you'd like the length to be, then bind off. It helps to have a lifeline or needle threaded through the sts so you don't go too far.

The bottom of the piece requires a K2,P2 rib. Would I be able to knit that back on?

Yes, you could knit it back on, and though the stitches will be off by one half, it shouldn't matter since you're switching from st to rib.

Yes, unravel what you need plus the amount for the rib, then start knitting in the rib pattern.
