Plumbing a shower.
PEX crimpers don't have to be expensive. They can range from $30-$150+. Obviously you won't get the best quality for 30 bucks, but for the amount you'll be using them probably not a big deal.
If your shower valve is threaded, you can use threaded by barbed brass fittings in that, but would still need to sweat adapters on the supply lines coming up in the wall. I wouldn't use Sharkbite fittings unless that's your only option (i.e., don't know how to solder).
If you need to sweat your shower valve, it's typically easiest to do it while it's out of the shower. If you're not experienced with soldering, take the cartridge out first to avoid melting/damage.
