As pointed out previously, using a plate under your existing mast step would be the simplest way to do this, and lead to the fewest holes in the cabintop. Most cabintops are cored, and having fewer holes is generally a good idea.

On my boat, I have the following lines led aft:

1) Main Halyard
2) Spinnaker Halyard
3) Outhaul
4) Topping Lift
5,6) First reef, tack and clew lines
7,8) Second reef, tack and clew lines
9, 10) Third reef, tack and clew lines
11) Boom brake

This allows me to raise, reef, lower the mainsail from the cockpit.

Could I attach stand up blocks to the deck right next to the mast plate I have?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
