I do not know if this has been asked before. I have a semi-oversize book I would like to mail. I have a box I can ship it in, but it is a bit too big. My question:  Can I fill up space with packaging peanuts (styrofoam) and still send the book media mail?

Yes, you can pack other things around it to fill in the space and it's fine to send Media Mail.  I use plastic grocery bags when I have a box like that - it makes nice extra cushioning too!
