Is there any leeway with choosing my starting items if I’m starting at a level higher than 1?


I’m preparing a Cleric for a Pathfinder 2nd Ed campaign and reached a bit of an impasse. Going by Table 10-10, my character should have one permanent 2nd level item, 2 permanent 1st level items and 25GP of other funds. The problem is that the 1st level items are either redundant (everburning torch and dull aeon stone) or are unusable for my character (Heavy Armors). Considering these factors, I have a few questions:

1) Can a selection of a permanent item be exchanged for multiple selections of consumable items of the same level? If so, how many?

2) Can you take a lump sum of GP instead of a permanent item? If so, how much?
