You will be fine as long as you do the basic mods and just a chip. When you start doing injectors, etc is when you want to think about a BTS or similar. You will have no worries as long as you drive responsibly.
I am not sure what you mean about your shifting, Is there a delay or hesitation instead of quick shifts? Sounds like normal stock shifting. Good tunes and/or a BTS valve body will set you straight with your shifting.
Do not waste your money on a 6.0l IC, but you may want the tranny cooler especially if you tow. The 6.0 tranny cooler is one of the best mods for our trucks and is fairly cheap.
I would start with a good set of guages, 6637 DIY intake and a good TS chip with PHP, Beans, Tony Wildman, Swamps tunes. Gearhead and BTS also have good tunes but its your choice, any of these tuners tunes will make you happy.
Then you can look around for free or cheap mods if you want. Keep it simple
