Would this be Possible to port to the switch. It would be a great game to have on the switch. Since we was able to port Quake doom and Duke nukem 3D. I think it would work if somebody with know How know how to it. Who else would want this? Can somebody help with this project for the community

Most such games you see are ones that have their source code releases or that had source remade, few will do the latter purposely for a console port these days. I don't know if the Switch has quite enough juice to do something like port a PC emulator with enough power for this game; while it was a Doom clone of a sort it was on the higher demand end of such things.
Looking at https://osgameclones.com/#redneck-rampage-games there is a project for them here, however it is still on google code (a source control that died some years ago now) which makes me wonder how advanced it got.

Also have to show some love for Mojo Nixon

also for what its worth the open src redneck rampage port is based on eduke32 however its an older version and its hard to know what version of eduke32 it is using from the svn code.
