DIY glass partition designing?

We just bought a new (to us)home built in 2007 on a crawl space. The master shower was not designed for 6'5" 250#
Guy's! My head is over the top and I can barely get out of the sliding doors. Don't laugh at the picture! OK you can laugh..😆
I want to:
  1. make a half wall glass partition between shower and tub.
  2. move the supply lines to the opposite wall and include the body sprayers.
  3. extend the shower out into the room flush with the wall separating shower and tub
  4. tile the shower
    Use a top roller style door?

-Can this be done?
-How would I do the glass partition and where would I get --What I assume is a custom peice of glass?
Pan or walkin?
-tap into the supply lines from under the house to move them to the opposite wall?
-Any kits available at lowes or HD that can be bought and modified.

I would imagine that you would be very pleased with frameless shower doors. Something along these lines.

Generally it's something best left to a commercial glass store to measure, order and install... in other words, not really a diy project because it's pretty custom work.

Yeah I am not crazy about installing the glass unless it was a straight forward kit. But like you said it would probably be a custom job.
The tile isn't an issue. I have done Floors so vertical tile can't be much different.

I am thinking about removing the closet and expanding the width of that area.

Depends on your budget. You can buy a preformed pan on line, do the tile and plumbing yourself and have a pro install frameless glass.
I would consider a rain type shower head from the ceiling. If you are moving the plumbing it wouldn't add much additional work. A preformed pan (I've installed several from Tile Redi) can be installed in a couple of hours and tiled the next day.
