When laying solid wood flooring, in this case random width, wide plank, soft yellow pine. Is it necessary to lay the planks perpendicular to the floor joists or can the flooring be laid by personal design choice?

If there is no sub-floor....
The further you get from perpendicular, the greater the length of board that has no support under it. As you go further away from perpendicular, you increase your chances of a "bouncy", weak floor.
Varying size boards are especially problematic. You need the END of each board to have support under it.

These are questions I've always had too. I was going to put in my own wood floors but decided it would be better for me to get them installed professionally. I was worried about messing it up and having to start all over. Maybe that could be an option for you, too. That way you would know it was being installed correctly.

You need to a carpenter to exactly information whatever you want but simply solid wood or plywood both are different parameters for the purpose of wood flooring on a particular place.
