I don't think there are any major showstoppers with moving the steering, I've seen privately owned postal vehicles that used a rope and pulley system to move the steering to the passenger side. Don't know how they did the pedals exactly, but they're just linkages. If it can be bent up one way, you can bend it up in another. You may even be able to run rigid connecting shafts from a new pedal box and run the original linkages in their original location from new pedals wherever you need them. Just remove the old pedals so they don't interfere with getting to the central driver's seat.

Admittedly the rope and pulley system I saw looked a little dodgy, but the guy had obviously been using it for years and there didn't appear to be any significant dents in his fenders, so it was reliable enough to keep him out of the ditches.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
