This sounds like a homework question. I'm pretty sure there are easy tests to determine which major operons regulate your gene... Its probably in your book. Changing the mechanism is pretty easy, just change the operator sequence upstream of the gene. I'm not really sure what the limitations of your answer are though, but there are plenty of solutions.

Microarrays! (That's my answer for everything but it works)

Well if you are in E. coli K12(aka MG1655) or O157:H7 you can lookup the genome. Other wise I suggest:
- Make a probe with your gene
- Southern on PFGE profile or BAC Library
- Sequence clone or cloned PFGE fragment
