Hi and welcome to the forum!

Hardly the task for a productivity suite. You should ask on forums dedicated to font design.

Here is a free (and open source) font editor software, named FontForge:
https://fontforge.github.io/en-US/

And there are "Mirrored fonts" (free an commercial) on the font related pages. Just use the Google.


And you can make mirrored font effects with the FontWork feature of the AOO/LO Draw application.
