If it's automatic, check the fluid. Low fluid will do that.

I had a similar problem, the car was very slow to start moving. The cause was the transmission range switch was loose and out of adjustment. Another way to tell if this is the problem is to turn the ignition switch on and put it in reverse. If the back up lights do not come on and the bulbs are good, then this could be your problem also. Hope that helps!

Could a faulty rad cap cause a rad hose to flex upon reving the engine?

The only thing that could cause the tube to flex would be for either the engine or radiator to move - and if it's happening when the engine is revved, it would most likely be the engine moving. Unless it's causing a leak that can't be fixed by a slightly longer hose, don't worry about it - that's why the hose is made of a flexible material.

In a four stroke engine the time period when both valves are slightly open is called valve?

If the valve timing is correct and there are no damaged engine parts (or weak/faulty valve springs) that should not happen, yet however if the engine is "over-revved" the valves could "float" which is not normal operation. (If the engine is an interference engine there may possibly be engine damage.) That is normal and it is called valve overlap.
