I've heard that if you shot the camera upside down, when the film is projected the motion is reversed.

Once you turn the piece of film around, end to end, and splice it in, yes.

Trouble is that if the format doesn't have perfs on both sides, you'd also have to flip the film around, which puts the emulsion on the incorrect side.

Not sure which technique also causes the image to be mirrored, flipping it or not flipping it.

Flipping since the emulsion will then be on the wrong side.

For 35mm a full aperture camera is required.
