You're on the right track seeking advice from others with more experience. Many aspects of metal building, such as the non prismitic members, side sway, member local buckeling and true joint stiffnesses are not elementary matters. A work of advice: I have been involved in the investigation of 3 metal buildiings that failed in hurricane winds. In each case, they might have survived if the their connections to the foundation had not corroded away before the storm. A little extra metal at the base plate and lower column area to compensate for corrosion would not cost much.
