Use a thin tape called 'pipe dope' around the male part that screws into the other. This prevents the connections from leaking. Your drain won't back up anymore & the smell will go away. When you do this have a bucket and a towel that you use as a rag. When you are finished & test it, turn water on slow and put bucket & towel underneath in case it leaks.
Did you look at the photographs? The cabinet, lav, and trap have all been removed. The OP is concerned about how to re-locate the wall fitting. We are here talking about apples, while you're in left field mumbling about oranges

Well, I ended up using a flexible Fernco coupling. I raised the pipe's pitch some to get the proper drop (actually more than the 1/4 drop per foot required by code). The copper drain pipe I removed was full of junk-probably due to the incorrect drop. Here's a pic of my completed work. I moved the water lines and put 1/4 turn compression valves on. I also added some GFCI outlets and put up the drywall. Taped last night. Hope to put final two coats on by this weekend, prime, texture, prime and paint.
