Is it realistic to get a repair person to drop the left hand notes of a stagi hayden concertina by an octave? This would give some beefy basses, but would the bellows provide enough air to keep the instrument going? Has anyone tried this? 

A slightly different question - has anyone tried adapting a hayden so that there is no overlap between the two hands, also lowering the left hand tones to achieve this?

I doubt it, but since this is an accordion reeded instrument you might try taking it to an accordion repair shop and ask them if there is a compatible set of low sounding accordion reeds that could be fitted.  You don't say where you are located, but if you are in the US then the Button Box should be able to give you a definitive answer.
