Couple ?'s as I watched some video's on these this morning after your post

Does it have a thumb..?........Apparently theres a round hole on front Right of cab/house that switchs the hydro flow to the thumb pedal....why its there I don't fully understand .. Goes from just 1 way flow to 2 way...

Secondly....... Can you switch this to Cat controls or did Mother Dear..fix it the deere way...?

Yes and yes, hydrolic thumb and you can change how hand controls function.
One way flow for things like a cutter, two way for thumb

So if you have it on 1 way for a flail head or whatever.........What happens when the rocker pedal is pushed the other way?

Nothing
or
Does it go the same direction pushing rocker pedal either way if that makes sense?

I'm just curious

The Cat to JD switch...Is that a manual valve or an electronic switch of some kind?

I've seen it a toss-up for switching from ISO to SAE controls. Some are a push button, some are a lever. On anything 20 years old or less it's usually a simple 5 second ordeal to swap. Gone are the days of swapping hoses.
