Can't replace sub floor due to pipes
"Can I use old pipes for support”
Don’t understand that part of the question.
If your talking about the pipes being drilled through the floor and how do you get the floor up then you sawzall a slot in the plywood. You say you can't tell were the joist are then cut out the rotted section you know your going to replace big enough to get you hand in there then feel were the joist are then stick your tape measure in there and it should be easy from there. Cut out all the plywood back the closest joist whether it's rotted or not and replace that section.
