Replacing Pedestal Sink With Vanity

My wife was complaining recently about not having enough counter space for things in our bathroom as we only have a pedestal sink. With her birthday coming up, I decided that I could purchase and install a vanity for her to replace the pedestal sink.

Here is the current setup:

Here is the vanity I purchased:

After reviewing, I am certain I know how to uninstall the sink but my installing the new vanity and mirror look to be tricky.

In several of the pictures in the current setup, you can see the wall where the current sink and future vanity will be attached. In the 1st and 4th photos, you can see that baseboard at the bottom. I am assuming that this needs to be removed so the vanity ends up being flush against the wall for a better overall look. I would assume that most baseboards are either glued or nailed/screwed to joints inside the wall. As you can see, the wall doesn't look like regular drywall but some type of fashioned board. How can I tell the way this baseboard is connected and what is the proper way to remove it and then put it back on once the vanity is in place?

In the last picture, you can see where the "fashioned board" meets the drywall and how there is another "baseboard" at that junction. You can also see how the current mirror lays over that baseboard instead of the board running through the mirror. My question on this part is the same as above except for the top board and mirror. How would you go about fitting the mirror there?

Those are my two biggest concerns right now but I may have other questions on this DIY project as I plan on beginning this next week on September 10 and want to be prepared for everything I need.
