How difficult, or more importantly, will it be possible to change out the lens mounts on the RED camera body?

Also, I have searched and I've heard it mentioned, will the RED system mount still camera lens'?

Also, my ARRI 2C uses the bayonet lens mount. Would I be able to use these lens on the RED with the PL adapter?

Changing the mount means that you'll need to reset it using a very accurate collimation device. Accurate to within a few microns. Yes your lenses with a PL adapter will work, but they're depth may be off unless you check them on a collimator as well.
