I think the answer to this question contains the answer you are looking for.

As Jeff mentionned, you have to replace your existing search components by Coveo ones, that is not only the sort dropdown and pagination, but the result list and searchbox as well since Coveo does not use LINQ.

In his answer, Jeff shared a link to the Coveo for Sitecore Hive documentation. This framework contains all the relevant Coveo components that you need (sort components and paging components) to use for this task. I would suggest going through the getting started tutorial. This should help you understand how the framework works.

You start by doing what I suggested on your previous question:

Pagination is out of the box with Coveo. There is a Coveo Pager component you can add to your Coveo for Sitecore Hive search page.

For the sort dropdown, Coveo do not have this component. However, they have various sort components that can be inserted in the page directly. Nothing prevents you to use some JavaScript, HTML and CSS to create a dropdown around the sort components placeholder.
