In softball when are the fielders able to use a force out?

Hello. A force out can be used when the runner is 'forced' to move to the next base. For example, when there's a baserunner at first and the batter hits the ball, there are force outs at both first (where the batter must go) and second (since the batter is coming to first, it forces the baserunner to second). However, if the ball is caught, the baserunner may stay at first since the batter is out. If the baserunner is not 'forced' to move to the next base, a force out cannot be used. For example, when there's a baserunner at second, first is empty and the batter hits the ball, there is only a force out at first. Since the baserunner on second does not have to yield her base to a runner directly behind her, she must be tagged to make the out if she tries to take third. Even in a situation where a force out will work, a tag is also an out. So IMO if the runner is off base and you can tag her, do it, then look to see if there are other outs that could be made.

Does a batter get an RBI if a runner scores on a passed ball if the batter then singles?

The batter could be credited with an RBI if, in the scorers judgment the base runner would have scored had there not been any overthrows (errors). For example, the batten singles and the runner is on third and scores, then the overthrows occur. The batter is credited with one RBI. In your original question, the batter would, in no case, be credited with an RBI on his own score.

Is a batter credited with a hit if an out isn't made on a fielder's choice?

No. If an out isn't made on a fielder's choice, it's an error for allowing the other baserunner to reach, but it's still FC for the batter. Say there's a runner on first. The batter hits an easily fielded ground ball to the shortstop, who chooses to attempt to put out the baserunner. That's a fielder's choice for the batter, no matter what happens next. If it's an out (6-4), bad throw (E6), second baseman fumbles it or fails to tag the base (E4A6), it's all the same to the batter.

Define a stolen base in softball?

when a baserunner decides to sprint to the next base right after the pitcher releases the ball. It is a risk. But once the catcher catches the ball that was just pitched, the catcher can very quickly decide to throw the ball to the base and try to get the baserunner, or stealer, out.
