Please tell me if April 10 is too late to transplant rhubarb. Also, what the best way and the best time to split a plant/root? Thanks!

Rhubarb can be transplanted as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. You can transplant now. The crown buds should be covered with 1-2 inches of soil.
Here is more information from Penn State on how to divide rhubarb https://extension.psu.edu/rhubarb-be-patient-and-you-will-be-rewarded
