Ya all the fluid is common. If you have problems anywhere in the trans it will end up in the pan. Small amounts of metal are not uncommon, so I am told, but carnage will be very evident there if you have some. It all sounds rather bleak though, to tell you the truth.
That program is supposed to be a good one. You may just be able to go to a shop and get them to read it without it costing you too much.
What other issues are you having with your truck?
Edit: unfortunately i think Mercon SP fluid is kind of expensive. You can only get 8 quarts out of the tranny by dropping the pan. To get all 18 out you have to do a flush. But still if you are just looking for metalic badness, dropping the pan is all you need to do. The filter should not be that much. it is more of a screen anyways. There is also an external inline filter. Just make sure you get SP fluid.
