Yes. The purpose of the transition is to create a pleasing edge to your flooring without binding it, since a laminate floor is designed to "float" and must not be inhibited in movement. Silicone, instead of a transition piece, will still allow enough movement for expansion and contraction. In fact, even if you do use a transition piece, it's a good practice to run a bead of silicone along the edge to seal out moisture that could creep under your flooring and ruin it.

If the entry is open to the elements, then I would say no. Water would get into the joints and degrade the unprotected fibre board base beneath the laminate. Even if the entry is closed off you are going to be walking a lot of water in. You could seal the joints off with clear silicon and put a door mat down but then it would negate the effect this sort of flooring promotes.

Laminate flooring has become very popular since its introduction in the United States in 1982. Easy to clean and take care of, laminate floors are becoming a favorite of home owners. Laminate flooring is easier to clean than carpet, it comes in many different designs, and you can install it yourself. The first thing you have to do is get rid of any other flooring. If you have carpet where you want to install laminate flooring, you need to be sure to pull up carpet, pad, any carpet tacks, and any other debris that has collected there. Make sure the floor beneath is level, and if not, level it out. Vacuum the area very well. Next, you need to remove baseboards. If you are very careful when you remove the baseboards, you can reuse them after the floor is installed. If they are not in good enough condition to use, you will need to purchase and install new ones. The bottoms of the door jambs will need to be trimmed with a coping saw so that there will be room underneath to fit the flooring and pad. Measure the height of pad and flooring together so that you know how much to trim. Once all that is done, you are ready to lay the underlayment pad. The separate pieces of the pad can be held together with clear plastic tape. Now, you are ready to install the flooring. Most laminate flooring comes in pieces that easily snap together. You will need to trim the snapping connectors on the pieces that are next to walls. You need to leave enough width between the flooring and the walls so that you can reinstall your baseboards. Start in a corner and put spacers between the wall and flooring to make sure the flooring does not slide up against the wall. Then you can start laying your flooring. As you go along, you may want to use a rubber mallet and a pull bar to smooth the flooring out. Once all the flooring is laid, reinstall your baseboards. Installing laminate flooring yourself is a fairly simple process, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing you completed a home project yourself.
