Hi Muneeb

Simplest solution DPDT switch (double pole double throw)

If you used center off, then you would also get an off position.  The motor gets wired to the center position.

E.g.  http://www.robotroom.com/DPDT-Bidirectional-Motor-Switch.html

Yes, of course, unless you're using physical switches

Any video or tutorial for this,

is it also possible to change a +/- of a dc motor using a potentionmeter or a photo resistor with a code

Tell us what hardware you've got and what sort of a motor you're trying to control.

(and please, don't just say "it's a 12V motor")

There are some motor controller shields for the arduino.  Easiest way.  Plenty of code examples.

Here is my blog with a higher current motor shield.  I thought I had some example code on there, let me find it.

This is just a rudimentary example to control the motor shield.

I suppose I asked for that. smiley-roll-blue

When asked to describe a motor, you need to state the voltage and the current.

Think about it; a slot-car runs on 12V, but so does a starter motor.
