how would Van Horstmann's Speculum (swap WS, S, T, I and A for the enemy's in a challenge) work when combined with the Mace of Helsturm (allows you make a single S10 D6 wounds attack instead of your usual attacks)? Would you be able to swap the statisics and then use the mace, or would the enemy get the S10 attack instead?

For example, if an arch lector with both items was charged and challenged by a doombull, and wanted to use the speculum to weaken the doombulls attacks in order to survive, would he still be able to use the mace?

Speculum changes the basic stat lines. Bonuses from items are not transferred.

In short yes your scenario works.

Yes, all it does it switch the stat line. Everything else with the characters stays the same. So the doom bull will only get 2 attacks with whatever weapon he has, now using the Lectors stats to wield it, and the Lector will still get to use his Mace with the doom bulls stats. Since items are not transfered you wont lose whatever weapon you are wielding.

Ditto with the changeling. He often gets twonked by crimson death...
