You should be able to find a P-trap assembly available at any local hardware store. The horizontal section should attach directly to the drain line coming out of the wall, while the vertical end should accept the tail piece from the sink.

Standard bathroom vanities were made at 32" years ago when many homes typically were 2/1's with a shared bathroom. That means parents and children would be using the same vanity.

This 'fake' wood is warping from bathroom moisture, hence the mirrors are becoming unglued and starting to flop.

This is not a trivial project, as apron front sinks have straight edges on the front sides and bottom. 2 cleats should span under the sink to support the weight. They should be sturdy enough to make the cradle, perhaps 1x3 or 1x4, oriented like joists. You could reinforce the cabinet sides with the same size boards laid flat and extending to the cabinet ...
