Wouldn't hurt to try it. I don't see it working as well as you hope, but it can't hurt to try.

Okie.
Dixie is not a very.. Shall we say... Specific horse. She has two speeds- "stop" and "walk". She doesn't exactly go where you point her, but she tries. So honestly, there is no need in having something really accurate. If it works, it works. Lol.
I was thinking, make the bit strap thingy go around the chin strap so that I can hook the reins onto it and the reins be at the tip of the nose band.
If you don't think that'll work I can always try clipping the reins to what holds the bit strap (for some reason, you can take the bit strap off), but that's about a half inch away from the nose band.

Or I could always try clipping it to the bottom part that you'd clip a lead to.

Can you provide a link or pic of the exact bridle you ordered?

Hooking the reins to the D-ring that the bit straps attach to won't work, as it would be too far up the horse's face.

Usually, on the halter bridles I've seen, the halter part is a constructed like a typical halter would be, meaning it has all the same hardware that a regular halter would have. So, you could just clip the reins to the same part of the halter that you do now.

But do you use it without the bit hangers, just clipping the reins to the halter? Seems to me a sidepull would be a better option, but what do I know.

This is what it would look like if the bit hanger wasn't there, but I'm not sure that halter ring is there. If it is, I'll use it, but I'll have to check. Well, plus mine is nylony like your average halter
