AFAIK, You adjust the chainline by just using a new, different bottom bracket. It's not that awful, monetarily, since they cost about $20-30 each

There's an old school bike shop in my area and he has a bunch of used bottom brackets which would be good for someone to buy or borrow for going through the trial and error process of finding the right size. You might inquire with a local shop for just that.

You can check sheldonbrown.com for sizing advice.
