    Might as well take apart the wall and raise the tee then. I don't want any issues just trying to save some time. I did notice that my drain goes into the wall then has a 90 to the right then....I don't know where else it goes. I imagine that behind the access plate on the wall there is a tee of some sort.

    Can I just cut off the 90 that's in the wall running towards the vanity horizontally and place a 90 going up vertically then another going horizontal

    NO! That would just create a more serious violation than the one in your drawing. If you raise the pipe you also have to raise the tee the pipe goes into. If the toilet is next to the sink, the pipe probably goes to a point near the center of the toilet and connects to its vertical vent.

    Inn; I hope you did not go to the trouble of typing that instead of copy and paste.
