Swapping sink and tub - OLD metal drain pipe


I just bought an old house (built in 1890) with a very tiny bathroom and clawfoot tub that takes up almost all of it. The tub drain pipe is a very old metal pipe that sticks out of the floor. I want to put a wall mounted sink there by connecting to the tub drain under the floor. (The new shower would be located where the sink currently is - easy access to that plumbing on other side of wall.) Obviously the metal pipe would need to be cut down to below floor level. The floor needs to be replaced (currently covered by cheap laminate planks to keep water from leaking through the old plank floor) so access is not a problem.

My question is if it's even possible to attach new PVC pipe to a metal pipe that's been cut down. I'm totally new to this DIY thing. My boyfriend and dad are both very handy but I'm wondering if there are any trade secrets that would make this easier or am I over-complicating the problem?

Thanks!
