I need to add a shower to the tub to accommodate someone
standing. Is this possible???

It looks like you have the clearances. You could use a glass half-panel on the side where the shower is installed.

Can you show a picture of the faucet end of the tub? That would determine if you could do it simply or need a plumber.

Thank you. We don't have standing room. I am 5'6 and I would have to arch my neck! Not good. What about a skylight, tile ceiling to floor and glass panel. The other idea I had was to take the tub out completely and tile in a long shower space with a seat with glass panels.

Do you have another tub in the house? If so, then taking it out for a full-size shower makes sense. Otherwise, i wouldn't take out the tub.

If you rearrange the fixtures in the room, you have several options. Right now, it appears that your tub is in the least favorable spot.

It looks to me like you could add a Solatube tubular daylighting device for light and add the exhaust fan to make it dual purpose.
