Is it possible on these rear hubs to change the freehub if I decide to down the line? Or are you stuck with what you initially choose?

You mean like from Shimano to Campy or vice versa? Yes.

The freehubs are easy to change. Use a locking compound on the axle caps.

How to change the freehubsof a Bitex Rar12? Is it just pulling out (like a DT240s freehub)?

Unscrew the DS axle cap. If the NDS one comes loose first that's ok, the axle has a hex inner. (I think it's 10mm). You can use that to hold the axle while you unscrew the DS cap.
Then the freehub pulls off the axle.

To install you need a small tool to fold the pawls in as you push lightly against the hub. Usually you can just turn the freehub backwards to fold up the pawls but that does not work on the Bitex for some reason. I use a small screwdriver to push them in one at a time.

Use a thread locker on the axle caps.
