First answer : You can use the reference-orientation property if your fo 
processor supports it.

Second answer : What are you trying to do ? do you want the whole document 
to be re-oriented or just some part of it ?

ref orientation may be applied to region, so it does a good job if you want 
start region with a verticaly aligned text.
If the whole document is targeted (an entire page I mean), you could use 
the page size setting to simulate the reference-orientation property, since 
it is not very well supported by now.

Hope that helps.
