C-PVC ball valves


I have in my bathroom (under the vanity) C-PVC lines, with C-PVC ball valves
I want to replace the valves by brass ball valves. What is best:
1) Use Sharkbite fittings
2) Use some kind of C-PVC/copper or brass fitting to be glued?

Thanks

OK, thanks
Now, if I were to decommission that vanity and cap the 2 pipes, should I use a Sharkbite cap or a C-PVC glued cap, knowing they will be inside the wall?
