Toliet Flange

With viewing the picture below, will a plumber be able to install a flange/toilet once I've installed all the flooring?

The coupling and new PVC pipe are primed and cemented. I was told by someone that the PVC pipe cannot be cemented prior to installing the flange (but the coupling should be). Is there a work around for this?

You're going to need a step ladder to get to the toilet.

Toliet Flange

Can someone explain what a plumber will do once the floor is in? Will they use an "inside pipe" cutter then install the flange? I'm definitely a beginner and I'd love to know!

Also, I'll be making the hole in the flooring for the toilet the size of pipe on the flange - is this correct?

Toilet won't be kept that high!

When you lay the sub floor material down, make the hole large enough to receive the flange hub. The plumber will cut the pipe with an inside cutter.
If that particular flange is the one you'll be using, I'd set and anchor it on top of the backer board. If set on top of the tile it will probably be too tall, makes life hard when setting the toilet.. That flange is awful thick
