Old pipes..new fixture..don't fit!

I'm wanting to change my bath tub with a hand held shower to a tub with an actual shower head. I found a spout with the pipe and shower head (like for a footed tub). I took the old spout off and noticed right off the pipe is not threaded and that it's also a bigger pipe than what would fit into the new spout. Also, the new pipe that goes to the shower head, is too short for what i'm wanting. My question is, can i get anything that can make my old pipes and new fixture work without having to install new pipes? And also is it possible to make the shower pipe longer (taller)?

If you can be more specific it would be helpful.

You have a tub spout now with a hand held shower?

If you could take pics it would be helpful. Post to a place like photobucket and past the link here.
