Nothing of your request is possible. If you want to rotate a plot
(interactively), I'd suggest to look at

1) cloud() in package lattice, or

2) the package RGL (Windows only, available at Duncan Murdoch's
homepage), or

3) the data visualiziation system "ggobi", available at
http://www.ggobi.org/ (R interfaces are also available)
