We report the effects of elemental substitutions in multiferroic ${it R}$Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ ($$R$$: Y, Ho-Lu, In). The substitution by nonmagnetic Ga$$^{3+}$$ at the Fe site, which has not been reported so far, shows a drastic decrease in the ferrimagnetic transition temperature ($$T_{rm N}$$). This is plausibly owing to the suppression of magnetic interactions between Fe ions, based on our previous results of other substituted systems such as ${it R}$FeCoO$$_{4}$$. Dielectric constants near room temperature were comparable to those of $$R$$Fe$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$. The suppression of dielectric loss in this system is suitable to application. The ${it R}$-site substitution was also attempted by the large R$$^{3+}$$ ions such as Dy$$^{3+}$$. The solubility limit was up to about 10% of ${it R}$ ions, as confirmed by XRD and EXAFS measurements. $$T_{rm N}$$ was raised by 5-10 K for Dy$$^{3+}$$ substitution.
