Is verge a verb?
Not in the most common usage. It is actually a noun. Verge as a noun is defined as either: A.) an edge, or B.) A limiting point or border. Verge as a verb however is defined as: "to be on the edge or margin; to border", or to come close to something; i.e. "I was on the verge of losing my cool." (I used Dictionary.com. See if that helps!)

What is the difference between rim edge brim border and verge?
The differences are subtle and depend entirely on context. They are all technically types of edges, though. Edge is the outside limit of an object, area, or surface. Rim is the upper or outer edge. Border is the edge or boundary. Brim is the projecting edge around the bottom of a hat or the upper edge of a cup, bowl, or other container. Verge is the edge, border, or extreme limit of something.
