Just looking for Suggestions

My truck is an '03 f250 with 190,000 miles 6.0 motor.
I have the idp programs with the normal cold air and 4in to five exhaust.
I have had the egr cooler replaced a while back with the replacement tube.

The problem I have is I cannot keep coolant in the over flow much longer than a couple weeks. I've noticed that it leaks out of the degas tank which points to the egr/oil cooler. I do not believe the HG's are going out since it still has loads of power with no smoke. Plus I have the typical problem with high oil temps and normal coolant temps.

#1 Does it sound like I'm on the right page?
#2 Does it make sense to put the egr delete/oil cooler in try that first?
#3 Who sells a complete egr delete kit with all the parts necessary to complete that job?
#4 What is the mist preferred oil cooler? Opinions are welcome.
#5 Any parts I might need? does the screen come with the cooler?
#6 Can someone point me in the right direction of the pictures of the cooler/delete and oil cooler pics
#7 Is there anyone that would like to do this work for me? Preferably in the MN twin cites area and free of charge but name a price.

Thanks for the help

Would there be any tell tail signs that its just the egr cooler leaking? (anti freeze anywhere)
Do head gaskets go out without blowing smoke or loss of power???
