Your second link does not show any picture, but I am guessing you want your start button at the bottom while you have your taskbar on the left side if that is what you are wanting the answer is no it cannot be done sorry

yes, thats 100% doable. Just Hover the muse over the taskbar, then hold the left mouse, then move it to the left. There ya go!!

There is no way to move the Start button. If you are docked to left, button will always be at top.
