The water lines must be CPVC, since PVC can only be used for cold water or drain lines, and not hot water lines.
Yes, you can switch to a single handle faucet from a dual handle. Go to a plumbing supply place that offers them with a large estuchion that allows replacement from the shower side, and will cover the dual handle holes.
Good Luck!
