Where are the feeds? Do they come down from the roofspace? If so swap them over up there. If under the bath do it down there.
However, it is extremely unlikley that the new mixer valve will match the pipe work of the old irrespectve of whether the hot is on the right or the left. So you'll have to do some work but probably not a total repipe. Hope you've got some spare tiles around.
Not quite sure, I think cold comes from above and hot from below.
I had the immersion and tank removed from the loft when i fitted the condensing boiler, so think that's where the cold comes from.
The new mixer fits exactly. I tried it today. It doesn't work with the hot and cold the wrong way round. I mounted it upside down and it does work, just looks a bit silly, and difficult to operate.
I suppose when I break up the tiles, i'll find out where the pipes run. Will the pipes be suspended, or will they be attached to anything??
