One related question: is it possible to change font automatically when
luatex sees a LTR word?

no, but you can define start\stop commands that deal with such switches

also, you can combine fonts (and there a yet not documented auto script/language switcher .. i have no time now to explain that one)

btw, never use \textdir and \pardir directly (i might even define them as no-ops some day) but use the higher level alignment commands
