Can the Aldermen vote on something during the misc & visitor's portion of a Board of Aldermen meeting? Or is it just for discussion only?

Your answer will almost certainly be found in own rules, ordinances, charter or state law, not in RONR .  

It has been my experience that City councils normally have a segment of the meeting at which members of the public can make comments. Normally, ordinances are not considered during that portion. Each ordinance is normally taken up as it is reached on the agenda your rules may differ and should be followed.

I think it is conceivable that some motion or resolution might be presented by an alderman from the floor as a result of such a discussion,  provided that motions from the floor without notice can be taken up. That is something not addressed by RONR.
