Im doing my first build and my chain rubs on the frame in 2 different spots. I was kinda hoping to not use the tensioner but its looking like I'll have to. Is it safe to flip the sprocket so the dish faces the opposite side? Is it a bad idea to cut the rubber ring in half so its thinner? Already spent like 4 hours adjusting sprocket I'm really not looking forward to taking it off again lol

First of all... your chain is way too loose! (so a tensioner is kinda mandatory).
Second... you can add a few axle washers to the inside of the frame to get a little extra clearance. ;)
Gonna try the washers now in a bit. I tried taking one more link out of chain and could not attach master link cause it seemed to be to short. I'm gonna see about getting a half link
