Is there an explicit parametric solution describing the curve result of the intersection of two elipsoid surfaces with abitrary position and orientation in $\mathbb{R}^3$?

generically you get an elliptic curve, so there is no rational parametrization (you could parametrize it using elliptic functions) –  user8268 Mar 20 '12 at 20:08
