Peel or cut away some of the plywood to give your self some room to work with. Be careful not to damage the shower pan above. Buy a large basin wrench. $15-$20 for a cheapo. I use a brass AB&A shower pan fitting. I also use lead wool and oakum to seal the pipe into the fitting but you can use the neoprene gasket that comes with the drain if you want. This set of pictures I will pack the lead wool and oakum before I install the fitting. you can cut or drill the old nut on bottom of fitting to easily remove . You just have to be careful and not drill through the shower pan. there is a thin rubber gasket between the nut and the bottom of the pan. Here's one of your pics and a few of mine. I made this repair Sept.14,2011

Can you show me examples of each type of drain you're talking about? Basically, you're going to want me to get a 2 coupler to connect the old 2 PVC piping to the new drain? Am I understanding that correctly?
I cant tell for sure, but that looks like the push fit type shower drain. Step one - dispose of that piece of garbage, if that is in fact what it is. Buy a shower drain that the outlet pipe cements into like all the other piping. You will likely need to cut/coupling the existing piping. Theres a big nut on the bottom of the shower. Once you thread that off you can remove the existing shower drain from up above. Dont caulk it. If it doesnt leak right away, it will at some point. You will have more peace of mind when its done properly. With a quality shower drain installed properly you will never have another issue.
