The pipe going from the main valve to the tub spout(not the sprayer above)needs to be a full 1/2" pipe if you used a pex 1/2" to the tub spout-the inside is usually smaller and causes it to back pressure and make water release thru the sprayer above-needs to be installed with a full 1/2" ID PIPE-AND DONT USE GALVANIZED

Put your cartridge back the way it was originally. By rotating 180 you reverse the hot and cold. Leave the handle and plastic adapter off. Turn on your water supply and turn valve with the plastic adapter until the water is shut off. Remove the adapter and install it with the set screw for handle facing down. Put your handle back on and that should take care of problem. (I did the exact same thing as you today....small world)

You probably have a Danco cartridge. Danco parts are available from some "Big Box" home improvement stores.

When it was installed was there any copper sweating done? If so, the valve cartridge can get fried if not removed prior to the immense heat from a torch.

Try finding the water source-turn it off-then on again after 10 min. Some ice makers have a reset button- check manual.

There is an anti-scald ring just before the handle goes on it determines where the handle stops you must have put it on wrong and or the cartridge is upside-down in relation to the handle.

I'm not aware of any problems with non moen replacement parts being the cause for a water hammer problem. Start with the simplest and cheapest correction which is using a moen replacement cartridge. If the water hammer persists then you may have to install a water hammer arrester in the plumbing system. This is basically a shock absorber in the plumbing system to stop the effect of water hammer. An arrester will cost you around $10 to $15 at your local plumbing supply shop. If you are not comfortable soldering copper then you will want to hire a licensed plumber to complete the work for you.

I had the same type of problem with an older toilet in my house. It developed a water hammer when it shut off after filling the tank. I replaced the fill valve with a generic universal replacement for about $10 and it stopped. Again sometimes the simplest fix will work. Let me know how it works out.
