There are frame of 45° right ? What if I put thrusters 45° up or down ? Would fly control respond when I press W to move forward ?

Or if the drive seat can be turned by a plate or something els. Then will my 'WASD' direction change?

Are the maneuvering thrusters vectored at all? So if I had a thruster on the back of the ship anghled 45 degrees up forex; would it be capable of firing straight up, or would it only fire in direction pointed?

They only fire in one direction. If they are diagonal, the force applied is diagonal.
And depending on how far their thrust vector is from CoM, they apply appropriate torque as well.

putting thrusters on an angle does allow them to be used for two directions at about 70% efficiency either way, so it's a crude kind of vectoring
