Drain Toilet to Basement Cleanout

Hi! I am working with a DIY remodeler and we have a question about adding a toilet to the first floor using an existing cleanout as the drain.

There are two other cleanouts in the basement and also one in the yard.

The existing cleanout is about 6" from the basement floor and threaded for the lid - what kind of pipe connection can we use to add a toilet drain to the cleanout, with an additional cleanout opening? I think we are specifically worried about the threads. Do we need to break out the concrete around it and add to the pipe?

We have created an in-wall vent at the new sink which the toilet would be vented to.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
