Also puzzled why you would need to do that unless the motor was incorrectly assembled by the factory (unlikely)

Forget the writing, that's just a sticker which could be stuck on either way.. The end of the motor that the wires go into is the fixed end. The motor shaft should normally stick out of that same end.

Like in the photo here (ignore writing, look at the wires): http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__3883__TR_35_30C_1100kv_Brushless_Outrunner_Eq_AX i_2808_.html

If you want to mount the prop on the opposite end to where the shaft sticks out then the motor comes with a prop adapter that bolts to the rotating end of the motor... The shaft would then just stick through a hole in the firewall/mount.

As for the wires.. just connect them any way you like.. If the motor runs backward swap over any two and direction will be reversed.
