reroute of sewer pipe?

Hello!! I need help in converting my bathroom into a laundry room and install a new bathroom next to it in another room. Basically I would be extending the current pipes and not rerouting them. The water would not be a problem but I am not sure about the sewer. I would only have to extend it about 2 feet since I am putting it along the same wall but on the other side. Also I have copper water pipes so is there a way that you can convert the copper to pvc?

Extending Lines

Thats not clear, if you have WATER lines they would have to be changed to CPVC, drain lines to PVC-DWV. Drain lines can be converted by using a Fernco or Mission coupling, water lines you can use a Shark Bite fitting depending on what you are doing, more info.
