I would appreciate any advice on how to convert a flat roof into a metal roof with minimal pitch or to possibly stay flat. If staying with a flat roof is not plausible, then how difficult would it be to install a metal roof with a minimal pitch. This would be a new project for me so any advice would be invaluable, also I would have a max of three men on this job would this be somthing that could be done or is it just a pipe dream?

Justin, All metal roofs require some pitch to prevent standing water. There are types of metal roofing, mostly standing seam systems that will do down to a 1/4:12 pitch (1/4" rise for every foot) You could check out the various manufacturers using the link above.
