I am trying to install recessed medicine cabinet. Can I reroute vent pipe (hand drawn white line) to accomodate recess?

Yes. IT is a vent so you have a lot of options.

you can cut it and use 90's as long as the offset starts above the flood rim of the sink. so cut it at about 40 inchs off the floor and slope the pipe slightly.
if you want to cut it lower then you need to use 45's..

Use 4 each PVC 45s so you can snake from the roof if needed or better consider installing a clean out tee below the san tee and above any kick plate in the cabinet if one is installed. Consider turning the clean out to the opposite side of the wall if it makes it easier to access. What is in the room on the other side of the wall? Looks like it could be a hallway.

Yes, it needs a 2" cleanout tee there.

Whether it needs one or not depends on what is under the floor. Four 45s will be more difficult to install than two 45s and two 90s, or four 90s.

The floor is concrete.

HJ (AZ) What is so difficult about installing 4 45s. If he installs a 2" clean out tee 12" above the slab he should be good to go.

To install four 45s he has to be able to lift the riser to fit them in.
