Moving Toilet
 
In my basement there is a toilet that is plumbed in on the old part of my basment. I was wondering if you can remove that toilet, but use the waste pipe and somehow connect a wall hung or rear flush toilet on the other side of the wall.

So basically I would use the waste line from the old, but connect a toilet that would sit abotu 2 feet away. I thought a rear flush or wall hung so I wouldn't have to tear out the floor. Is this possible?

Sure it can be done, but doing this a complicated and you should have a plumber do this. Not a DIY job

Any idea on how much something like this would cost i.e. move a toilet a couple of feet?

With a wall mount set up, costly, get a few bids from locals and you will have a good number to look at.

Are there any other GOOD options that would allow me not to have to tear up concrete? I am just trying to problem solve with an existing toilet and making sure the drop would be okay for a new line...I figure it has to be cheaper to do a wall mount or rear flush than messing with the floor. I know there is the upflush systems, but I would think that they would be pretty messy if they break down.

IMO it would be cheaper to open the floor then to go wall mount, besides, you would probably need to open some of the floor around the existing flange to make a connection for a wall mount setup
