Plumbing forums no replies so I'll try here

Hello everyone. I currently am combining two bedrooms into one and taking the 1/2 bath in the master and making it a full bath with walk in shower. The big issue is this is a slab ranch house. So demo of the slab is necessary. I have attached a print of the project. My question is how I plan on routing the drains for new shower and vanity. Please advise if its all messed up or changes to make things better to plumb...thanks again.
I live in Ohio if that matters. Basically the plan is to expose the toilet waste line and cut the cast pipe out, tie in a PVC with fernco and t- off that to pickup the shower drain. The sink drain will be picked up by the shower line with a wet vent.

Hard to tell from your drawings, but generally wet vents are not allowed by ahj. Even if they were or if job not being inspected I'd look for alternatives.

Can't tee into horizontal waste lines, should use wye so there's more of a sweeping transition.

If walls are uncovered photos of existing would help. Vents can be tied together in attic. I'd be looking for a way to vent the vanity and shower separately close to drains. Usually 5' considered max.

Where is the vanity vent?

Don't think that you have acceptable venting in that scheme. Generally, if I understand it properly, if say your shower was vented properly, you could wet vent the toilet from it, but the toilet flow going past an unvented shower would suck that trap dry.
