Would it be best to move the tub all the way to the right and fill in on the left? (right hand tub)

If it's a right hand tub, move to the right. Fill on the left, correct. After the tub is in just to make it easier to get in.

Remove the drywall from one side ceiling to floor and add a 1 inch thick piece of wood that you cut on your table saw from a 2x4. Also could buy a 5/4 trim which is actually only 1 inch thick

Nail to 2x and wala the tub fits. You will have some sheetrock to do and a small offset, but it looks ok.
