Yes, you are correct that you need to invert the projector if it doesn't have lens shift.
No, there aren't any mounts designed for what you want, but there are about a dozen options you have.
You can just flip the projector over and shim under it (as said above) which can work fine if you do a good job. You can use wood, or foam, or any number of other things to 'shim' the projector. Just don't block vent holes and understand that it may be a real pain in the neck to try to get it aligned correctly.
I would recommend mounting it to the BOTTOM of a shelf with a good projector mount. If you need to, install another shelf really high, just under the ceiling, you can mount to.
This is all on the concept that the mount needs to be about 8' off the ground.
If this doesn't work with what you have, then you need to consider what exactly you are doing and how important the quality of the final product is vs. the aesthetics.
