Wasn't the copilot named as "Captain Brandon Hendrickson"? Not an FO then,
and presumably with no qualms either about having to taxi to stand.

The need to change to the left seat could be a consequence of the use of the visual docking guidance system at the gate L23 the pilot said he would go to.
Some of those guidance systems require the pilot using it to be in the left seat; using it from the right-hand seat will bring the fuselage closer and possibly too close to the fixed structures of the gate.

Waiting for a marshaller might be an alternative, but a response to that request could also take some time, and might still be tricky to perform flawlessly at short notice while the area at the gate might not yet be fully prepared. So planning to use the left seat might be a wise choice.

Trying to get an incapacitated pilot out of an Embraer seat might not be a wise choice, if the pilot isn't interfering with the controls then the suggested action in training is to secure the pilot in the seat. I'd wait for a marshaller.

From my listening to the ATC recording, it's my guess that the right hand seat pilot was a captain. His easy assumption of control, his calm demeanour and clear communication suggest this.

There’s a statement from the Enovy VP of Flight Ops, the pilot who died was “a Captain in training.” The simple way of saying getting his operating experience. So the the right seat Pilot would have been a Line Check Airman.
