Is it possible to rotate the map?

Sometimes things are very difficult to select because they are behind buildings or other things.

The shorcut icon, key, etc. would be greatly appreciated

No, I do not believe this is possible. However, you can use x to "shadow" objects, which is very useful to solve the problem you are experiencing.

For finer-grained control, the transparency toolbar (gear menu->Transparency Options) lets you set transparency (or total invisibility) for classes of objects. – Mark Jul 23 '14 at 9:40
