Not replacing trusses.....want to open them up to expose them and add a ceiling light...
You cannot cut the trusses without compromising the structure.

I think he's asking if he can tear out sheetrock and insulation have exposed trusses. If this is the case, the answer is yes, but you may end up looking at wires, pipes, and air ducts with roof sheathing for a backdrop. You will also loose your insulation. Exposed ceilings really nee to be designed into the house ahead of time.
