It's easier than you think. :)

Do you know the parameter "double.sided"? 
Set it to the value of 1 and it gives you exactly what you want: an odd
and even page with mirrored headers, footers, and margins. 

For more details, see the reference page of "double.sided":


If you need more information that goes beyond the above parameter, look
into Bob's book, chapter 8 "Printed output options":
