Handling surface mounts

  1. I have a GPS module whose footprint was placed on my main PCB by accident and need to find a work around. The EMI from the traces and MCU near the footprint for the module make it less than ideal for the specific requirements of the GPS modules embedded antenna. I've never dealt with surface mounts but is there any way to solder connectors of some sort onto the main PCB so that the module can be mounted on a separate board and connected with extensions wires. I'm completely new to the terminology and my options in this situation, I'd like to avoid having to redraw and reorder the main PCB. If any one could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

  4. Yes just one. Also do you know if there is such a thing as a 2mm pitch female to 2.5mm pitch male converter ?

    Disregard this question I've found adapters. Thank you
