At present we are using Cicso load Balancers to route traffic to our DMZ Servers for a variety of ports 80 and 5100.... and so on various protocols HTTP/HTTPS/FTP
Can ARR accomplish the same functionality? Can I route custom ports to internal Server Farm? Use HTTP Rerewrite rule?
Can someone shed more light on it?

ARR does not accomplish the same functionality if you carefully check its documentation,
FTP is clearly not supported, and HTTPS support in most cases require offloading.
ARR was not designed nor developed to replace traditional hardware load balancer (but to improve usability like
https://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/configuring-application-request-routing-arr/achieving-high-availability-and-scalability-arr-and-hardware-load-balancer ), so if you do use a hardware, keep using it.

In addition, You could route custom port to internal server farm. We could create outbound rule to route the request to internal server farm.
This link provide the method to create the outbound rule to routing the request to backend:
Besides, to build load balance via ARR, this link could give you some suggestions:
