How can I tell ..

1) If I can equip an item properly (eg NOT DK and cloth) - other than checking if it is leather/cloth etc and having hard-coded things like "Paladin=plate". Is there a proper API function for this?

2) Convert ItemEquipLocation (as per GetItemInfo) to slot Id as used by GetInventoryItemLink
currently using a table from https://wow.gamepedia.com/ItemEquipLoc but it'd be nicer if there were an API call for this?

There are these global constants:

GetItemInfo will give you something like "INVTYPE_HEAD", so you could replace "INVTYPE" with "INVSLOT" and look it up in _G.

That said, I don't think the slot IDs have ever changed, so there's not really any compelling reason to look them up dynamically vs. hardcoding a table.
