Mexican Spanish to Castellano! Help me migrate :D

When i go to spain in september for a week i want to know what to say and what not to say!
Im specifically thinking about phrases like "no mames" or "wey" or "pendejo" which are distinctly mexican, and would like to know what their castellano counterparts are?
Any other examples would be very helpful too!
If there are regional variations, im going to the Barcelona area (maybe also to pais vasco) so those two would be helpful.
Also for the accent, just for fun, how do i imitate the castellano accent if i have a mexican spanish accent already? Do i just replace "z" and "c" with "th" or is there more to it?
