From what I understand camber can be set up roughly with a spirit level as the holes are slotted. But what’s this about the toe needing adjustment surely this should remain unaffected?
Yeh it may go out slightly.

You wont be able to get the camber perfect, just straight enough for the time being. you'll have to take it to a garage no matter what, so let them sort it out.

Is the 6n2 roughly the same? And is there a height adjustment guide?
I've got a height adjustment tool but not sure how it'll work

IIRC it's 7mm. But that's a guess, it's been years since I did the job!
