bob, the shower floor needs to slope to the drain prior to hot mopping. the purpose of this is to allow for any moisture/ water to work its way to the weep holes when water gets through the grout.
if your intstalling a pre-fabbed plastic shower pan, then you need to level the sub-floor. plaster of paris works good too, to set the pan into wet mud and level. just make sure it's level before it sets hard, fast.
i wouldn't worry about the mortar sticking to the base. this is something that is a permanent installation. it's not like you're going to change it on a yearly basis.
what should i use under shower pan to level it
if i use mortor will it stick to pan so i can not get it back
The manufacture will generally tell you what they want under the fiberglass (or plastic) pan but it is more for support than it is for leveling. Mortar or casting plaster is what generally is used. I am not sure why you would want to remove it later but the pan can be removed later if needed depending on the type of surface the bottom has.

i wanted to remove the fiberglass pan made by sterling so i could put silicone all around bottom as i have seen recommended.but since i have read sterlings
instuctions it said not to use silicone as it may trap moisture and create mold
I've used the Schluter Shower System a few times. It works great and is very easy to instal. Its becoming quite popular up here. I've used Shluter products for years on my tile jobs. They make good quality products.
