I agree that it can get confusing.
As far as using Restore Plus, it is a strong acid cleaner. It can possibly cause more issues than it resolves (as far as the oil cooler goes). If you don't need it, I would certainly avoid it. It can cost you 2 or 3 more oil coolers.
You don't get a tuner to read engine parameters (even tough some can). There are many devices and options for getting that data without a tuner.
Downloading a smartphone app is cheap and easy. ForScan and Torque Pro are two of the better ones. You will need an ELM327 device - either Bluetooth or WiFi depending on what smartphone you have (Android or Apple). The ForScan software is far better at reading codes than the Torque Pro.
The ScangaugeII is clunky and doesn't read codes very well at all, but it works fine for engine parameters and is relatively small.
You are heading down a path of doing things without knowing the full story. It may work out or it may not, but many people have ended up calling the 6.0L a POS after going down this path. Most of the folks in this category could have avoided much headaches.
