A lot of your questions are open for interpretation, meaning everyone will have their own opinion about which route you should go. One thing I think everyone here will agree on - DO NOT buy a bullet proofing kit with Black Onyx head gaskets, there are several posts here of failures on stock tuned, daily driven trucks. Stick with blue, Ford OEM head gaskets for now.
I personally have the IPR Gen2 EGR delete and found it to be very simple to install and pretty much fail proof. However there are a few people that simply weld freeze plugs into the ends of the stock cooler. Whatever works for you, both do generally the same thing. I also run the MBRP 4" straight pipe exhaust and LOVE it. The grey hair crowd here doesn't like the noise, but its a beautiful sound to me.
