House is plumbed with pex pipe. I want to modify the bathroom layout. The
pex is terminated with 1/2 copper tubing 6" long.
Can I solder a 1/2"fitting on tubing without damaging the pex/copper joint?
If so need help about using non solder 1/2" shark bite connectors on copper
tubing or the pex itself.
Advice and ideas needed.

you can solder, but be careful, wrap a wet rag around the copper between
where your soldering and where the pex connection is to slow the heat
transfer to the pex, and only heat the pipe enough for the solder to flow
freely, and you should be fine.
