The VerticalHeaderAlignement property is available with Q2 release, so if you are using earlier version you should change the entire template of the Expander. Also about the rotation of the header, you also need to change the default template and update the RotateAngle of the transform to fits your needs.
Please let us know if you have any troubles with updating the default template.
