Need advise 4 extending sink supply lines

I tore out the bathroom vanity sink and cabinets, tiled my floor then went to install new sink and....realized that half of the wall space is used for the intake vent to my air-vent system in the house. I guess that is why they had the sink next to the tub. I have looked everywhere for advice. I want to center my new sink on that there an easy way to connect my new sink to the lines which are about a foot from where they should connect or is it time to call a plumber? Thx!

The correct way is to open the wall and move the lines.

Another option would be to abandon those lines. Put the vanity where you want and drill down through the vanity and the floor to the crawl or basement. ( If slab cannot do) Then cut the old lines in the crawl where they tie into the main water and re pipe them to the new holes you drilled.

You could of course leave the pipes and add a long enough supply. Drill through the side of the vanity, but it wont look to good will it? LOL.. But I have seen some crazy stuff.
