You can mirror a viewport, but it does not mirror the contents. So it's basically a COPY. A viewport mirrored needs to be turned ON using MVIEW.
You can copy a viewport, and then change the view direction in the viewport using DVIEW to look at the model from the bottom, but that's not a mirrored view. Your right and left hands are "mirror" images, so looking at the back of your right hand is not the same as looking at your left palm. Thumbs are pointing the same way but that's about it.
You can mirror a viewport, but as OLD-CADaver has stated it is merely a
copy... if you want the contents to be mirrored then you might copy the
viewport, flip your UCS (Y 180) and do a PLAN view of that... basically
looking at the model from the back side... or simply use the VPOINT command
and use 0,0,-1 for your viewing point.
What is the desired results?

vpoint (0,0,-1) was able to do what i wanted. it kept the xref in model space in place and only mirrored the viewport. and i'm able to create multiple viewports with the original view (not mirrored). all the text is reversed though. that did it!
