Welcome, MP

It'll help if you'll keep all your project questions on one thread so folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered.

If you need to fill the sunken portion of your foundation slab to build what you want I would certainly recommend you not use any sort of foam shower tray. Simply form the top of your mud bed to incorporate your necessary slope to drain and achieve exactly the height you need.

I believe that would be your option b.

2. No, you should use a slurry of thinset mortar or Portland cement to bond your deck mud to your concrete.

I trust you'll have a door on this shower?

Have you consulted your code compliance people about this proposed design?

My opinion; worth price charged.
